Material or non-material? That is the question

is running a series of free interactive webinars for Riliance subscribers looking at the obligations firms have to record and report breaches, and what is likely to constitute a material and non-material breach; each webinar comes with a set of real life case studies for attendees to consider and debate.

Brian Rogers, Director of Risk and Compliance, is running the webinars and said;

“This area is obviously causing firms some real headaches as we have seen a very high demand for the webinars; we had 60 bookings within 2 hours and now have 24 fully booked sessions with a waiting list for the next batch of dates!

I have run three sessions so far and both interactivity by attendees, and feedback, has been excellent; it is clear that COLP/COFAs want, and need, a forum in which to look at case studies and then debate them looking at the types of questions that should be asked to try and determine whether a breach is material or not.

Firms clearly need to understand what is required of them under the rules, but there comes a time when they also need to see how these rules might work in real life scenarios; these webinars give them the best of both worlds”.

Riliance subscribers interested in attending future webinars should contact the Riliance client services team at clientservices@riliance.co.uk.

Non-Riliance subscribers interested in attending future webinars should contact Mark Gidge, Chief Executive on 01829 731201.

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.
