In October 2018, the Council of the Federation approved amendments to the No Cash and Client Identification and Verification Model Rules, and approved a new Trust Accounting Model Rule.

The Law Society’s Professional Regulation Committee will be reviewing the FLSC’s upcoming guidance regarding these amendments and will report to Convocation in due course.
