CPD Requirements: On 21 May 2014, the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) 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. From 1 November 2016, all solicitors must adopt the SRA’s new approach to continuing competence. Solicitors must reflect on their practice and undertake regular learning and development so their skills and knowledge remain up to date. All solicitors will need to make an annual declaration to the SRA that they have done this. Visit the SRA website for more details.
PLI’s programs may be eligible for your own identified learning and development needs under the Solicitors Regulation Authority’s new approach to Continuing Professional Development (CPD). For additional information, please refer to the Continuing Competence Guidance FAQs. View programs eligible for CPD-UK credit.
Attendance Reporting: Solicitors must make an annual declaration to the Solicitors Regulation Authority that they have reflected on their practice and undertake regular learning and development so their skills and knowledge remain up to date. Please keep a copy of your PLI certificates for your records.
