Legal Services Board: Ongoing competence – call for evidence

In June the JLD responded to the Legal Services Board (LSB) call for evidence regarding ongoing competence. This is part of the LSB’s policy objective which states: “Regulators have appropriate frameworks for continuing assurance of professional competence throughout the careers of the people they regulate.”

The purpose of this particular exercise (launched in January 2020) was to enable the LSB to capture relevant information to help them understand current approaches to assuring competence and gain clarity on whether there are any gaps in the system or areas of concern that need to be addressed.
