How have the first three months of the SRA’s Standards & Regulations (STaRs) been for you? Have you got to grips with the changes or are they causing you headaches? Have you had time to consider all the other regulatory challenges, such as compliance with the Fifth Money Laundering Directive, which became law on 20 December 2019 and entered into force just three weeks later?
This year’s Legal Futures Compliance and Regulation Conference is focused on the practical impact of these and other changes facing law firms of every shape and size. It is an opportunity to hear from and quiz the decision-makers, COLPs, COFAs and others on the frontline of ensuring solicitors stay on the right side of the SRA’s enforcement policy.
As well as an in-depth look into the issues that have arisen with STaRs and the new Solicitors Accounts Rules since November, we will highlight the key trends and risks in anti-money laundering and cyber-crime, consider the current state of the professional indemnity insurance market in the wake of the SRA’s decision not to reduce the minimum level of cover, and also look at professional negligence trends.
It will also be just 18 months until the new Solicitors Qualifying Examination will introduce a seismic change to the way solicitors train. Many have yet to give its impact much thought, so we are holding a panel debate with those who have so you can start the conversation in your firm.
This event is aimed at:
- Managing partners/CEOs
- COLPs and COFAs
- Money Laundering Reporting Officers
- Compliance experts
- Regulation specialists
- IT directors
