Join us over breakfast to discuss the changes proposed by The Solicitors Regulation Authority and consider what the future might hold for our law school and the legal profession.
The Solicitors Regulation Authority (the SRA) is proposing to reform how solicitors qualify in England and Wales. The proposals have serious and detrimental implications for the practice of social justice law such as disability, family and welfare law, and also for diversity in the profession (there are also concerns about the narrowing of the curriculum for commercial law subjects). The reforms lack a deep evidence base and have been criticised by the majority of stakeholders.
Join us over breakfast to discuss the proposed changes and consider what the future might hold for our law school and the legal profession.
Please note: only 25 places are available so please register in advance to confirm your attendance.
