Welcome to the Legal Education and Training Review (LETR). LETR is a joint project of the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), the Bar Standards Board (BSB) and ILEX Professional Standards (IPS). It constitutes a fundamental, evidence-based review of education and training requirements across regulated and non-regulated legal services in England and Wales. The legal services sector is experiencing an unprecedented degree of change. LETR is required to ensure that the future system of legal education and training will be effective and efficient in preparing legal service providers to meet the needs of consumers. Final recommendations will be made in December 2012. It will be for each regulator subsequently to set out a process for addressing recommendations in the report, and to consult formally on any proposed changes.
This website is hosted by the independent research team that is conducting this phase of the Review.
Speaking on behalf of the three regulators who jointly commissioned the Legal Education and Training Review, Antony Townsend said: “The Bar Standards Board (BSB), Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and ILEX Professional Standards (IPS) have received the final research report, which is being considered at the regulators’ respective Board meetings this month.
The final report has been delivered on budget and will be published towards the end of June.”
