Ongoing competence: 13 October 2021 discussion event

On 13 October 2021, the LSB hosted an online discussion event to inform our work on ongoing competence.

We wanted to seek views on the LSB’s plans to introduce new expectations of how legal services regulators should ensure the ongoing competence of the legal professionals they regulate.

We were joined by 60+ stakeholders from across the UK legal services sector, as well as regulators from other sectors and in different time zones.

Below we provide the agenda, an unattributed note capturing the discussion from the event and the LSB presentations from the day:

The feedback we received at this event will inform our policy development that is underway. We intend to consult on our plans to introduce new expectations from December 2021. If you would like to speak to us about this project in the interim (or at any time), please do not hesitate to get in touch with the project team.
