Domain A1 of the SRA Competence Statement stipulates that practitioners must ”Act honestly and with integrity, in accordance with legal and regulatory requirements and the SRA Handbook and Code of Conduct.”
To ensure that legal professionals, and the firms for which they work, can easily comply with this requirement, Datalaw have put together an impressive array of legal regulatory and compliance webinars which cover areas including law firm risk management, equality and diversity training and SRA complaints handling.
Datalaw’s selection of SRA regulatory and compliance training courses are perfect for firms whose employees have varying roles and levels of knowledge and experience; our selection of ‘Essential Knowledge’ taster courses are essential for support staff, paralegals and legal executives and cover the SRA as a regulator, financial services, money laundering and mortgage fraud, whilst the introductory title OFR and Compliance with the SRA Code of Conduct, delivered by business development consultant and former managing partner at Eversheds Peter Scott, is indispensable for new starters and trainee solicitors.
Expanding upon the requirements within domain A1 of the SRA Competence Statement, legal professionals must be able to recognise ethical issues and exercising effective judgement in addressing them. Vital for all members of staff, our constructive bite-size Ethics and Professionalism webinar is a cost-effective solution to managing risk and will ensure that your firm’s COLP has nothing to do.
For those seeking guidance on whistle blowing policy and procedure, our new whistleblowing training course Raising Concerns and Whistleblowing – A Guide for Solicitors is ideal; Delivered by entertaining lecturer and barrister Alastair Hodge, this session will emphasise the importance of having a whistleblowing policy and will offer guidance on how firms can create one, if needed.
Datalaw also offer an assortment of intermediate and advanced courses which are essential for experienced practitioners who require more in-depth legal compliance training; the aptly named Lexcel and SQM Auditing courses, delivered by accredited Lexcel consultant Norman Denton and approved SQM auditor Carol Wealleans (formerly Taylor) respectively, are invaluable for firms seeking to obtain the Law Society Lexcel accreditation or Specialist Quality Mark.
Similarly, the other courses within this section will be invaluable to firms who have these quality marks and whose senior compliance staff including the COLP, COFA, practice manager and partners require legal regulatory and compliance training to uphold their excellent standard of legal practice management.
