Keeping a record

You must record:

  • how you planned to meet your learning needs
  • what you did to meet the learning needs
  • how the activities you did met the learning needs you identified

It’s good practice to keep your records for six years.

You may want to use Law Society Learning or the forms in the SRA’s online template to keep your records.

Disclosing records

The SRA may ask for your records of planning and completing learning activities if it:

  • needs to contact you about a regulatory matter
  • has evidence of a competence risk

You may also have to disclose your records if a case is brought against you for negligence or if a claim is made on your professional indemnity insurance.
