Bristol commercial firm Burges Salmon has created a post of director of legal training to enforce Law Society standards for continuing professional development.
Assistant solicitor Pauline Holland, who has already taken up the post, will also supervise training for trainee solicitors.
Senior partner David Marsh said: "We felt it important to adopt a more centralised co-ordination of legal training for all lawyers."
Holland has been at Burges Salmon for 10 years and works in the firm's private client department, where she has been training representative for the past five years. She is junior vice-president of Bristol Law Society and chair of its training committee.
She said: "I am looking forward to applying the experience I have gained on Law Society training committees."
