A major component of the nation’s services economy, the legal services sector was worth £25.7 billion in revenue to the Exchequer in 2015 (about 1.5% of the UK’s Gross Value Added, or ‘GVA’), while employing 300,000 people and contributed a trade surplus of £3.3 billion that year. The UK’s healthy competitive position has been the result of several interlocking benefits: British courts’ global renown as fair and effective arbitration centres; English Common Law’s pre-eminence as the most widely followed code globally, whose flexibility has made it the framework of choice for international commercial contracts; the UK’s well-regarded system of legal education and qualification; the industry’s proximity to London’s global financial and business activities and the City’s position as a natural ‘window to Europe’ for parties based outside of the Continent.
