The changes to continuing professional development will be mandatory from 1 November 2016. Nicola Jones and Jane Green-Armytage look at how firms are responding, and the pros and cons of adapting the old regime versus embracing a competency-based approach.
The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) have published a discussion paper this week as part of their continued efforts to review and reform client financial protection arrangements.
Two years have passed since the EU Commission published the original version of the Fourth Money Laundering Directive (4MLD) and the various parties to the legislative process have now finally reached agreement on the text.
The events below are available for a reduced rate for members of the Risk and Compliance Service.
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.
The conference will boast an impressive team of regulatory experts who will support you to successfully manage your compliance responsibilities.
Risk and Compliance Service members get access to free and discounted webinars and events throughout the year.
Join this webinar to get an overview of continuing competence - what do I need to know? how do I identify my training needs? how do I keep training records? and how do I demonstrate that the SRA requirements have been met?
This webinar, offered at a 20 per cent discount to Private Client Section members, will give you an in-depth understanding of how to start planning now for continuing competence.
