A report on the findings of the most significant review of legal education and training in over a decade has been further delayed.
The Legal Education and Training Review report was originally meant to be released in December 2012.
Publication was then moved to 16 January 2013, but it has now emerged that the team behind the review, appointed by the Bar Standards Board, ILEX Professional Standards and the Solicitors Regulation Authority, needs more time “finalising” the report.
In a statement, the SRA said: “Given the weight of evidence and in consideration of the importance and complexity of the review, the Commissioning Regulators have agreed to allow the LETR research team more time to finalise the report. A date for publication will be issued shortly.”
