Legal services are amongst the most protected services across the globe. The protection comes mainly from regulatory barriers related to qualification recognition, residency conditions, area of practice etc. The European Union (EU) also has various regulations affecting the supply and availability of legal services in its Member States. Some of these regulations are common across the Member States whereas some are unique to particular Member States. An examination of the regulatory framework for legal services in the selected EU Member countries, namely, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Sweden and the UK, reveals that these countries have varying degrees of restrictiveness for foreign legal professionals.
