Barristers to face CPD spot checks

According to The Law Society Gazette, barristers will face spot checks on whether they comply with the “controversial” new CPD rules. The Bar Standards Board’s Education and Training Committee’s annual report, discussed at a recent board meeting, says that “spot checks will commence in early 2018.” An assessment framework for the process was considered by the committee and the plans will be finalised at the committee’s next meeting.
