We present a number of public courses throughout the year which are designed to meet popular demand. We also currently provide Lexcel training on behalf of the Law Society. In addition, we offer bespoke training courses which are designed by the client and our expert team.
As of 1 November 2014, the SRA ceased to accredit all training providers, including DG Legal, for CPD purposes. As a result, our courses can no longer be accredited. Solicitors are permitted to continue to use DG Legal to fulfil their CPD requirements and/or as a means to evidence that they have attended professional training as part of the SRA’s new competence based scheme.
