Legal Education and Training Review
The Legal Education and Training Review is a joint project of
- the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA),
- the Bar Standards Board (BSB), and
- the Institute of Legal Executives Professional Standards (IPS).
The review got under way in June 2011 and involves a fundamental examination of the education and training requirements of the legal profession in the light of the Legal Services Act 2007. It entails a programme of research independently conducted by the UKCLE Research Consortium, led by Professor Julian Webb. The research will result in a final report, presenting a number of recommendations for the future regulation of legal education and training.
The research process involves wide engagement with practitioners, consumers, regulators and professional groups. In addition, the research team is advised by the Consultation Steering Panel, formed of key stakeholder groups and chaired by Dame Janet Gaymer and Sir Mark Potter.
