Welcome to The Legal Education and Training Review (LETR) – 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.

This website presents much of the evidence collected and used during the research phase of the project, as well as the LETR Report which contains the Review Team’s final recommendations.

In the next stage of the project each regulator will set out a process for addressing the recommendations in the report, and consulting formally on any proposed changes.


The LETR report has now been published. The news release linking to the report can be found here. The BSB, SRA and ILEX Professional Standards (IPS) have each issued individual responses to the report:
