The CLSB has published its response to the Legal Services Board’s consultation on a draft statement of policy, aimed at ensuring ongoing competence of legal professionals. The CLSB welcomes the LSB’s research and leadership in this area, but has warned the oversight body against being overly prescriptive and adopting a “one size fits all” approach, which could prevent regulators from tailoring competency requirements to the unique needs of practitioners, clients and the public in different parts of the sector.
