Opening of Mauritius to International Law Firms and Formation of Law Corporations [23 January 2007]

Government has decided to open Mauritius to International Law Firms by amending the Law Practitioners Act to allow the formation of Law Corporations. The Hon. Attorney-General has asked the Commission to review and examine this aspect of the law and to report thereon. An Advisory Panel has been set up composed of members of the Commission and persons affected by the matter to be studied (namely representatives of the legal professions, the Bar, Attorneys and Notaries).

Members of the public, in particular the stakeholders, are invited to make written submissions on the above matter by letter or e-mail to the Chief Executive Officer by 15 March 2007.
