Legal aid supervision – All you need to know

Print This Post

12 August 2014


The Legal Aid Agency has made a legal aid supervision course mandatory for new supervisors and for those who have not supervised recently. This brand new course will satisfy the supervision requirements in the Legal Aid Agency Standard Crime, Civil & Family Contracts.

Get it wrong and you risk your contract being terminated, a breach of SRA regulations and being reported by your COLP – with increasingly lower legal rates and fixed fees and you cannot afford to get this wrong.

This full-day comprehensive course will cover the new supervisor requirements introduced by the LAA, along with tips on how to reduce the risk of your firm losing its legal aid. If you are a new or existing SQM or Lexcel supervisor, family, crime or social welfare supervisor, then this is an essential course for you.

Is it time solicitors started taking ethics training more seriously?

mena_ruparel

The requirement for solicitors to behave ethically in modern legal practice is more relevant than ever. Solicitors are still held in fairly high regard by the public, although that esteem is on the wane according to last year’s Trusted Professions poll by Ipsos Mori. Lawyers are less trusted than teachers and doctors but at least we prevail over accountants and bankers. We still hold a position of trust but we must work to hold that position. The current Solicitors Regulation Authority proposals to revise the Handbook are evidence that work still needs to be done.
