Diversity is important to the successful functioning of law firms as well as ensuring the ongoing relevance of the legal profession. This course will look at what we mean by diversity, why it is important and how firms can ensure that they are implementing strategies that will encourage it.
This course is applicable to all solicitors. Each individual is responsible for complying with the requirements of the SRA Handbook, and the managers of each firm responsible for the overall compliance of their individual firms.
Compliance Officers for Legal Practice (COLPs) and for Finance and Administration (COFAs) will find these courses of particular interest as their role is to champion the role of compliance and good risk management within their firms. These courses may be integrated within existing processes to ensure that individuals are given sufficient information to comply with the SRA Handbook.
