The Solicitors Regulation Authority is undergoing a programme of education and training reform, “Training for Tomorrow”, following the Legal and Education Training Review (LETR).

As part of the reforms the SRA are developing a competence statement for solicitors to inform consumers, assist legal education providers in developing courses and allow solicitors to reflect on their own professional development throughout the course of their careers.

Thanks to all those who earned some or most of their 2014 CPD with us recently.

As solicitors should by now be aware, the SRA is moving towards a new approach to continuing competence. You can continue to record 16 hours CPD annually for relevant activity (accreditation is no longer an issue) until October 2016, or follow the new regime which will be announced in April.
