With visits from the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board, Brunel is planning ahead
The future of Legal education is going through major reforms. The profession is realising it needs to open up to enable more people to develop careers in the profession.
In June 2016 Brunel Law School established a Working Group to discuss, prepare and plan for these changes. The group meets regularly to discuss how Brunel Law School can stay at the forefront of the changes which lie ahead for the future of legal education.
In March 2017 the Solicitors Regulation Authority visited the Law School for fruitful discussions, and last week, the group invited Dr Vanessa Davies, Chief Executive of the Bar Standards Board (BSB), which regulates barristers and specialised legal services businesses in England and Wales.
The BSB is reforming the training for barristers to be more flexible, accessible and affordable, whilst maintaining its current high standards.
Professor Arad Reisberg, Head of Brunel Law School said: “It was real pleasure to host the Chief Executive of the BSB at the Law School for an open, engaging and stimulating discussion. We are looking forward to continuing the discussion and contributing to the Consulation on the future training to the Bar. We all have an invested interest to make sure it works well.”
