Compliance Officers conference 2018

Our annual conference for Compliance Officers took place on 11 December 2018 at the ICC, Birmingham.

Now in its sixth year, this offers keynote presentations, multiple breakout sessions and panels on topics that are both thought-provoking and can support you in your role.






Compliance Officers for Legal Practice (COLPs) and Compliance Officers for Finance and Administration (COFAs) play a key role in the SRA's regime of outcomes-focused regulation, aimed at producing the most appropriate outcomes for consumers of legal services. The COLP and COFA is instrumental in creating a culture of compliance throughout a firm, becoming its focal point for the identification of risk, and the key point of contact for the SRA.

Through COLPs and COFAs, the SRA is promoting the benefits of closer working between the regulator and those who are regulated.
