New approach to Continuing Competence

Solicitors have a regulatory requirement to provide a proper standard of service. To do this, solicitors will need to reflect on their practice and undertake regular learning and development so their skills and knowledge remain up to date. This resource provides information to help solicitors adopt our new approach to ensure continuing competence. It will also be useful for those organisations that employ solicitors.

Each coloured box below contains information on what you need to do under our new approach and will help you:

  • reflect on your practice to identify your learning and development needs
  • plan how you will address your learning and development needs
  • think about how you can address you learning and development needs
  • record and evaluate your learning and development activity

The information in this resource is not mandatory. It is up to you how you use the information to help you structure, focus and address your learning development.
