Standards of Service - Advocacy: The Risks and Warnings for Solicitors

The SRA Risk Outlook 2018 highlights the risks and harm that can be caused by poor standards of service in criminal practice particularly as many people in the criminal justice system are vulnerable. It also highlights the potential wider impact on confidence in the profession if there are issues surrounding a solicitor’s competence in this area.

The SRA, jointly with the Bar Standards Board, commissioned independent research with judges who identified areas where they believe there is room for improvement.

This course will highlight those areas where it is felt there is such room for improvement by lawyers and their firms and consider steps that can be taken to continue improving the service to clients.

The course trainer, Roy Morgan, is an experienced solicitor advocate who will provide insight and expertise.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This course is applicable to all solicitors conducting advocacy in the criminal courts at any level.   Each individual is responsible for complying with the requirements of the SRA Handbook and the managers of each firm are responsible for the overall compliance of their individual firms.   

Compliance Officers for Legal Practice (COLPs) will find these courses of particular interest as their role is to champion compliance and good risk management within their firms.  These courses may be integrated within existing processes to ensure that individuals are given sufficient information to comply with the SRA Handbook.
