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.
This webinar presentation addresses matters that must be considered by in-house counsel including:
- Common regulatory compliance issues for solicitors working in-house •Key compliance changes e.g the impact of the SRA principles/code on in-house legal teams and CPD/continuing competence considerations
- Should your employer be considering authorisation?
- A glance into the future – what’s in the pipeline?
