Course Summary

Our course covers the definitions and rules established by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) regarding conflicts of interest. Understanding these definitions and rules is crucial for ensuring compliance and upholding the highest standards of professional conduct within your law firm. By familiarising yourself with the SRA guidelines, you will gain valuable insights into the ethical considerations surrounding conflicts of interest.

Identifying conflicts of interest is a fundamental aspect of ethical practice. Throughout this course, you will learn how to recognise potential conflicts early on, before they escalate into serious legal and reputational issues. We will provide you with practical tools and techniques to assess client relationships, business transactions, and other scenarios that may give rise to conflicts. By honing your conflict identification skills, you will be better equipped to navigate complex legal landscapes with confidence.

Maintaining compliance with conflicts of interest regulations requires robust policies and procedures. Our course delves into the best practices for developing and implementing these essential frameworks within your law firm. You will explore strategies for effective conflict checks, managing conflicting interests, and creating a culture of transparency and integrity. By implementing these policies and procedures, you can mitigate the risks associated with conflicts of interest and safeguard your firm’s reputation.

This e-learning course provides a flexible and accessible platform for legal professionals to enhance their understanding of conflicts of interest and compliance. With user-friendly modules, interactive exercises, and engaging content, you can conveniently progress through the course at your own pace, maximising your learning experience.

Navigating conflicts of interest can be difficult: as even when there is no evidence or intention of improper conduct: the mere perception of a conflict can create the appearance of impropriety. This can be damaging to a firm’s reputation: so it is vital to have a thorough understanding of how to identify and mitigate conflicts of interest.
