From 2011-13 I lead the research programme for the Legal Education and Training Review in England and Wales. The Review was instigated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, Bar Standards Board and ILEX Professional Standards – the three largest ‘frontline’ regulators in the English legal services sector. Unlike earlier reviews its primary focus was on the regulation of legal education across the whole legal services sector. The final report of the research team is published online at http://www.letr.org.uk. The website also contains copies of the various working and discussion papers generated during the research phase, a separate (thematic) literature review, and extensive bibliography.
The first presentation on this page provides an overview of what was planned at the outset of the research phase:
This second presentation summarises the main conclusions of and highlights a number of issues arising from the research team’s final report: LETR CSP July 2013
