Vinciworks200VinciWorks – the leader in online compliance learning – has just released a new, 30-minute interactive course to brush up on the SRA Accounts Rules.

The course provides an overview of the key definitions, explains the rules that impact day-to-day work, and tests understanding with real-life scenarios. It digests the rules into concise principles and clarifies how client and firm money should be handled. The course is designed for fee earners, support staff and anyone else involved in handling client money.

Why is this important for you?

According to Rule 6, Non-compliance by any member of staff will also lead to the principals and COFA being in breach of the rules. Serious breaches will be referred to the Solicitors’ Disciplinary Tribunal (“SDT”) whose findings are published. The SDT and the SRA have the power to impose fines or other restrictions on any member of staff (not just solicitors).

Woebots and robots

Nadia chatbot

The chances are that you may not be entirely sure what a bot or a chatbot is. So, the news that, “starting today, DoNotPay is opening up so that anyone can create legal bots for free (with no technical knowledge)” may be a bit opaque. But bots have their devotees. The picture is of Nadia, an Australian bot being developed to give information on disability benefits with the voice of Cate Blanchett. The editor of Chatbots Magazine (OK, no neutral source) is pretty clear about their future. He writes articles with titles like ‘How bots will completely kill websites and mobile apps’. Joshua Browder, the creator of the DoNotPay parking ticket challenger, is behind what he hopes will be this major expansion of legal bots.
