The new version of the Lexcel standard (‘v6.1’) became mandatory for all assessments taking place from 1 November 2018. V6.1 reflects recent changes to AML regulations. And, it places a significant emphasis upon compliance with GDPR/data protection; compliance with which we know is of great concern to many legal practices and departments.
To give our clients a head start, in 2018 we provided several very well received training sessions on v6.1, which included particular reference to GDPR matters. The sessions were delivered by the Lexcel advisor who conducted the v6.1 assessor training for the Law Society, and who was a speaker at the Law Society’s 2018 annual Lexcel conference, as well as his having delivered webinars and authored articles on data protection, for the Law Society. These are a few quotes from clients that attended our sessions.
“Very thorough explanation”, “Useful pointers and guidance”, “Lots of new information, ways we need to improve”, “Excellent Trainer”
In response to demand from clients who were unable to attend in 2018, we will be delivering additional sessions in the New Year, at venues across the country. See below for details.
