Forum: Compliance support for in-house lawyers (London, various dates in 2017)

Traditionally in-house lawyers have had a long-distance relationship with the SRA but this is no longer possible. Recent changes in the law, and with the introduction of the SRA Handbook, mean that in-house practice is of greater interest to the regulator than ever before and ignorance of compliance requirements is a risky position to sustain.

Webinars for Risk and Compliance members
