Events to support Competence Statement Consultation
The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) is running two events to raise awareness and understanding of the SRA’s draft Competence Statement and supporting documents.
Bespoke sessions are taking place in in London and Birmingham on 19th November and 5th December targeted at:
- Training Principals (19th November, Chancery Lane, London, 10 am -12 noon).
- All stakeholders including students, solicitors, consumers, (5th December, Birmingham,10 am – 12 noon).
A separate event is being held for legal educators, who will be contacted direct by the SRA. A webinar is also planned for December.
Julie Brannan, Director of Education and Training said: "We have already had a high level of engagement from solicitors, legal educators and consumers during the development of the Competence Statement. These road show events will be an opportunity to hear more views and discuss whether our proposed Competence Statement captures the activities which all solicitors should be able to do competently."
