An Invitation to ALL Scottish Solicitors and Trainees


IMPORTANT CHANGES TO EDUCATION AND TRAINING SYSTEM
INCEPTION OF PEAT2 – 1ST SEPTEMBER 2011


The Law Society of Scotland’s new Professional Education and Training regulations involve substantial implications for training firms. This question and answer forum includes presentations from:

Douglas Mill, Director of Professional Legal Practice, University of Glasgow, who will speak about the perspective of the training firm and potential provider, and
• Liz Campbell, Director of Education and Training, Law Society of Scotland, who will speak about the new system, the timelines and the Society’s licensing system for training firms and providers.

Venue: Sir Alexander Stone Building Lecture Theatre, 16 University Gardens.
Date: Wednesday 4th May 2011
Time: 4pm to 6pm

Who should attend?
• All Glasgow and West of Scotland area training firms, whatever size and nature.
• All trainees and prospective trainees – particularly those intending to train with small and medium sized firms
• All local Faculties for whom geography is an important consideration in accessing training.

Issues to be addressed:
• How will PEAT2 affect our trainees next year?
• What if they start before 1st September?
• How does Trainee CPD differ from the PCC?
• What are the prospective costs of the new scheme?
• What licences are involved?

The School of Law at the University of Glasgow is happy to invite you to send two delegates to this event, ideally Human Resources personnel, Training Partners and Supervisors. The success of the Glasgow Diploma has been predicated on a phenomenal response from the Glasgow legal profession by way of the provision of 125 experienced tutors and participants in the Glasgow Legal 40 mentoring scheme. The University perceives it has a duty to act as a conduit for information to firms about training implications in order to ensure that they are fully aware of the new scheme. The University is also considering facilitating provision of PEAT2 TCPD by way of provision in house and at Gilmorehill.

There is no cost for attending this event. The Lecture Theatre has a capacity of 200. In order to confirm numbers for catering purposes, those interested are invited to contact: Douglas.mill@glasgow.ac.uk
