From 23 November 2020, the PDC will no longer be available. You'll need to complete any courses you have begun by this date. You'll also need to download any training records and certificates you want to keep while you still have access.

Law Society Learning

Over the last year, we’ve been working to deliver our new learning and development platform – Law Society Learning – designed to give you efficient, easy access to develop the essential skills and knowledge you need to remain competitive and safe to practise.

The initial launch will host a limited body of content focused on compliance and in house. We will also integrate career activities for a ‘one stop shop’ experience.

All content is mapped to the Law Society’s curriculum, which is another new feature of our education offer.

The platform will host completely new e-learning content, with intuitive feedback and rating options, and enhanced assessment mechanisms.

Look out for your invitation to test the new system throughout this month.
