Lexcel v6.1

Understanding the changes and applying the GDPR
21st March 2019
“I attended the session with preparation for Lexcel v6.1 in mind, but was delighted to have learnt so much more about the GDPR than I have anywhere else.” Session delegate, October 2018. (100% of previous delegates would recommend this session to a colleague.)
The GDPR has touchpoints with every section of the new Lexcel standard. This session puts Lexcel and GDPR into meaningful terms, to support your compliance with both.
Lexcel v6.1 also introduces new requirements for avoiding financial crime and for client care.

The Law Society's Lexcel assessor trainer and Law Society 2018 and 2019 Lexcel Conference speaker, Neil Partridge, will set out the changes in Lexcel v6.1 and discuss the preparations that you will need to put in place ahead of your next Lexcel assessment.

Delegates will also be provided with detail about Cyber Essentials accreditation (which is linked to the new version of the Lexcel standard).
