What is pre-admission screening ?

It is an applicant screening check which is completed before admission as a solicitor. 

If you have lived in the UK for a period of 12 months or more during the last 5 years you must complete an online screening application with Atlantic Data Ltd. 

The screening process (which includes a Disclosure and Barring Service check) looks at: 

  • Spent and current convictions. 
  • Police cautions. 
  • Reprimands or final warnings recorded on the police national computer. 
  • Financial History.
