Political debate on the draft Legal Practitioners Bill continues to rage in the Cayman Islands …

There appear to be two major political issues that are getting in the way of effective legal reform of the Caymanian legal profession.

The second issue relates to the question as to whether or not major law firms are breaking any existing laws by practicing Cayman Islands law in overseas jurisdictions.
