About the Book

A newly admitted lawyer needs sufficient knowledge and skill to maintain trust and office accounts in accordance with the law and good practice.

With much space dedicated to practice transactions and specimen accounts, there is plenty of opportunity for readers to become familiar with the major areas of the trust account, controlled money and office records.

This new edition explains important changes brought about the 2004 Legal Profession Act and the 2005 Legal Profession Regulation. Written for practitioners and students of degree or diploma courses in law and practical legal training, this text will quash all qualms about book-keeping.
