Conveyancing Quality Scheme 2022 – Surviving the Assessment
At the end of March, The Law Society announced on-site CQS assessments will be commencing from 1st May 2022 and CQS accredited firms should be ‘assessment ready’ by this date.
New 2022 core practice management standards have also been published by The Law Society, and CQS accredited firms are expected to be following these in practice and be able to demonstrate compliance with these new standards from 1st May.
Practices will be selected for assessment both reactively and through random selection.
The assessment will be both technical and qualitative and will require CQS accredited firms to demonstrate compliance with the CQS scheme throughout the Conveyancing Department, including the ability to evidence the Core Practice Management Standard requirements and The Law Society Conveyancing Protocol requirements through their conduct of conveyancing files.
This webinar is specifically designed for firms who are both CQS accredited, and those firms who are currently working towards attaining accreditation.
The presenter, Tracy Thompson, who is a CQS Lead Assessor, will provide guidance on what to expect when your firm is selected for assessment in addition to gaining practical experience of how to evidence the CPMS requirements to the assessor.
