Trainee CPD Course Brochure and Application Form 2022


 Trainee Continuing Professional Development (TCPD) has been prescribed by the Law Society of Scotland as a requirement for the professional qualificatiLSS Approved TCPD Provider 01on of trainee solicitors. The RFPG (in association with SLAS) has drawn up a programme which meets all the requirements of the Law Society. As far as possible the programme will be part of the traineeship rather than additional to it and will provide, through a team of experienced solicitors an excellent grounding in each of the main areas of legal practice and incorporate topics requisitioned by the training firm. 

This course will provide training and support for the trainee with the minimum of disturbance to the main training vehicle - the traineeship itself. It is designed to limit the intrusion into the traineeship by providing a flexible online timetable and by including supervised independent study exercises to be completed outwith business hours. The programme has developed in the ten years it has been running and now includes a large number of Zoom meetings and, in order to maintain the quality of the delivery the numbers on the programme will be limited to 22 (early applications are required to ensure a place on the course). If regulations surrounding Covid-19 permit we will offer (but not compel the inclusion of real face-to-face meetings.

The list of modules to be included are as follows (subject to course development changes) -
Organisation & Time Management; Executry Practice; Regulation of Solicitors; Legal Writing; Negotiation; Conveyancing; Civil Litigation; Client Care Criminal Litigation; Ethics; Law Care; Interviewing; Commercial Awareness; Professional Regulation; Commercial Leases;...

The aim of the course is to provide experiential practice in individual examples of each of these topics, as drawn from specific, practical case studies. The objective is to put the trainee, as far as possible, into the position of having practical experience in each of these topics in a joined up programme presented by a nody of experienced, current practitioners. As required by Law Society design the course will be underpinned by a focus on -
• Professional Ethics and Standards; • Professionalism; • Professional communication; • Business, financial, commercial and practice awareness; • Substantive and relevant legal knowledge

The cost of the programme is £950 and an invoice will be issued once a place on the programme has been confirmed.
