Safeguarding for Lawyers Course - Tuesday 28 February 2023

This event has now ended, however, you can view all upcoming Safeguarding for Lawyers Courses here:


This training is for lawyers who may come into contact with vulnerable people through their work. In particular, it is aimed at those who hold legal aid contracts and must meet the requirements of the Specialist Quality Mark (SQM) standard in respect of safeguarding.

Everyone has the right to be kept safe from harm, abuse or neglect. We all have obligations to ensure that vulnerable people are protected and that we have appropriate procedures in place to ensure that abuse is identified and reported.

We will help you to understand the following;

  • What is safeguarding?
  • The different types of abuse
  • Example signs of abuse, harm and neglect
  • What action should be taken if abuse is suspected
  • The SQM requirements
  • What a Safeguarding Policy should include

Please note that this topic is covered in our Specialist Quality Mark (SQM) Standard Training Requirements Courses.
