Please note that the New Partner Practice Management Course will take place on Thursday 24 September. Those who have already registered to attend the course on 27 May are invited to attend on this new date.

Please see further details below.

New Partner Practice Management Course

Anyone who becomes a “manager of a practice” is obliged to attend the New Partner Practice Management course (PMC) within 12 months of assuming that role. Due to the postponement of the May 2020 course, please note that the period allowed for compliance has been extended to allow you to complete the course in September 2020.

The course is formed of two components: online modules and a live training day. Upon booking you will receive access to online modules to watch. These modules are compulsory for all attendees. You can complete them in your own time, providing it is within one year of your appointment as a practice manager.

The September 2020 PMC training day will be hosted online. We are working to complete the online programme and will publish details of the day’s sessions in due course.

Registration for September 2020 PMC is now open. Please follow the link below to access your Law Society membership and confirm your attendance.

Once you are registered you will receive emails confirming your booking, and another granting you access to each individual online module.

Upon completion of the course, you will gain 10 hours verifiable CPD.

If you have any queries about any aspect of the course, please put those to cpd@lawscot.org.uk and we will respond as soon as possible.
