SAR - Keeping you up to date Wednesday 29th September 2021 - 9.45am - 5.00pm Speaker: Janet Taylor, Director, PKF Francis Clark SRA Competence: D   VenueThis all day Seminar is intended to be presented live at Exeter Racecourse subject to conditions allowing. If this is not possible it will be presented using Zoom web conferencing.   Why you and your staff should attend these sessions?   The protection of client money is the joint and several responsibility of all principals in a law firm. This responsibility extends not only to their own compliance but that of all employees.   While the accounts team in many law firms often take the lion’s share of the burden of dealing with the SRA Accounts Rules requirements, effective compliance depends upon everyone in the firm understanding their role, responsibilities, the firm’s own procedures and in communicating information effectively.   The latest version of the SRA Accounts Rules came into force in November 2019. The regulator introduced a number of changes, moving away from very detailed prescriptive rules to a more ‘principles’ based approach - but what does this actually mean in practice?   The purpose of this training session is to ensure that all fee earners and staff are up to date, have a good understanding of the key rules and common pitfalls.   The sessions will be practical and participative and will use case study exercises and examples.   Morning session - Your essentials   Aimed at staff with little or no knowledge of the Rules and those who are returning to this area and need to get back ‘up to speed’ and will cover: The SRA Standards and Regulations Where the SRA Accounts Rules fit in Areas of the Codes of Conduct which impact on the SRA Accounts Rules?
