ABSTRACT
The article reports that during 2005 the Netherlands' Minister of Justice Piet Hein Donner hopes to push through parliament a surprisingly radical 11 point programme of reform of the Dutch legal profession. The liberal Netherlands may be about to have an image change. As Dutch lawyers were hanging up their Christmas stockings, they were reminded of the minister's scheme by post. The most controversial proposal--for law firms to be made liable for individual lawyers' behaviour--is likely to have spoilt the taste of their turkeys. Donner is concerned that lawyers can escape being disciplined for misconduct if their clients fail to make a complaint against them.
