SRA Training for Tomorrow: New solicitor qualifying examination – BSN Consultation events in Birmingham (27th January & 28th January 2016)

January 28, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Training for Tomorrow: New Solicitor Qualifying Examination  – BSN Consultation Events January 2016

 On 7 December 2015, the SRA launched a consultation on the introduction of a common professional assessment for all intending solicitors. Under the proposed new system proposed, everyone wanting to qualify as a solicitor would undergo the same professional assessment, called the Solicitors Qualifying Examination, based on the competences required to do the job. The SRA believe that this would ensure consistent high standards of entry into the profession, providing confidence for the public and employers. Pre-qualification workplace experience is also likely to form part of any new system.  The consultation runs until 4 March 2016 and can be found on the SRA consultations page.

 The SRA have arranged two consultation events for BSN members to  hear your views on their proposal. The events will take place on:

Birmingham – Thursday 28 January 201617:30-20:00 – SRA, The Cube, Birmingham

 At these events, you will have the opportunity to hear more from Julie Brannan, Director of Education and Training, about the SRA proposals and how they would work.

This event is open to all current students (law and non-law), graduates, post-graduates, current trainees, practising solicitors, academics and other legal professionals who are interested in sharing their views and opinions on the future of the solicitors’ profession in England & Wales.

Guests will also receive light refreshments.
