Whilst the compulsory requirement for all solicitors to attend MCS1 in the first 3 years of admission may have been removed by the SRA, the core skills required of all solicitors remain as well as for those on the journey to becoming a successful manager.

This brand new virtual classroom programme is aimed at all solicitors in their first 3 years of PQE and will explore 8 key skills areas; all of which are aligned to the 4 Core Competency sections of the SRA Threshold Standard in the Competency Statement.
