07/04/2014 - Training for Tomorrow - A New Approach to Continuing Competence – cover letter for submission

In general terms, the covering letter for the submission welcomed the plan to allow individual solicitors and the regulated entities for which they work the freedom to determine the right way to ensure "continuing competence". The letter went on to note that while there was not unanimity of view across the CLLS on the issue of mandatory Hours, on balance the Committee supported the SRA's plan to drop that requirement “as doing any fixed number of Hours is not of itself a way to guarantee competence”. It noted that “[t]he new regime should give the profession the flexibility to decide how to ensure competence while being structured and monitored in a way which ensures compliance.” It also noted that a number of issues needed also to be addressed, including what standard is being applied when determining "competence", the need for Indicative Behaviours to guide individual solicitors as to what they could or should do, and the importance that the new scheme not be seen as “voluntary”. It cautioned that change is needed to make the current scheme more effective, but that care is needed if the new regime is to ensure that the collective competence of the profession continues to be enhanced.

26/02/2014 - Response to the SRA's Consultation Paper "Training for Tomorrow: Regulation Review"

The consultation paper set out the SRA’s proposals to change the current education and training framework by “remov[ing] unnecessary regulatory burdens and improve[ing] processes.” The Committee responded in detail to the consultation, and raised general concerns about the SRA’s apparent intention to place obligations on training providers, law firms and so on (rather than the SRA itself directly regulating “quality”), as well as the potentially far-reaching consequences of some of the new regulatory proposals contained in the consultation paper.

19/12/2013 - Response to LSB consultation on Increasing flexibility in legal education and training: Consultation on proposals for draft statutory guidance to be issued under section 162 of the Legal Services Act 2007

The consultation concerned statutory guidance (based around five outcomes) that the LSB proposes to issue to all approved regulators. The Committee’s response raised a number of concerns with the LSB’s paper and in conclusion stated that “It will be clear that we have extremely serious reservations about the Consultation Paper. We do not accept that there needs to be statutory guidance. If there is to be guidance it has to be well thought out, based on evidence (not prejudice) and coherent and realistic. We would have thought the current Consultation Paper should be withdrawn.”
