United Kingdom (CPD-UK)

 

CPD Requirements: On 21 May 2014, the Solicitors Regulation Authority agreed to implement a new approach to continuing competence and the CPD scheme. This approach allows solicitors to determine the learning and development they need to ensure they deliver a competent legal service. The requirement to undertake mandatory continuing professional development (CPD) training has been eliminated. Under the new approach to continuing competence, solicitors are not required to undertake accredited CPD from 1 November 2014 and the SRA will cease to recognize accredited training from this point. Visit the SRA for more details.

 

Until 31 October 2016, solicitors can choose either: i) to follow existing CPD requirements; or ii) from 1 April 2015, to adopt the new approach to continuing competence. Solicitors who choose to comply with current CPD requirements until 31 October 2016 must continue to undertake 16 hours of activity, as outlined in the guidance note for Regulation 8 of our current CPD regulations during each CPD year, and confirm that they have met this requirement as part of the annual practicing certificate renewal exercise (PCRE). From 1 November 2014, there will be no requirement to undertake accredited training as part of the 16 hours CPD requirement.

 

For additional information, please see the FAQ page on the SRA’s website.
