CQS TRAINING

Accredited by The Law Society, we provide core and update training courses required by the Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS).

The Law Society has informed us they intend to launch their updated training in October 2020. As approved providers of CQS training we will be launching our courses at the same time.

YOU HAVE A CHOICE!

You have a choice about CQS mandatory training. That is because we sued the Law Society in the Competition Appeal Tribunal. Previously the Law Society had awarded itself a monopoly, which the Tribunal found was illegal. It granted us an injunction. So be reassured that the Law Society cannot penalise you in any way for buying our product rather than theirs.

WHY BUY FROM SOCRATES?

We specialise in making lively, witty and effective training for law firms.

In making these courses we have worked with real estate expert Alan Riley of Property PSL . Alan was formerly with the University of Law (as were some members of the Socrates team) where he taught property law. He now runs the “Property PSL” business, supporting firms with their know-how needs.

WHAT IT COSTS

Courses cost £35 plus VAT per person for a 12 month license. So it will cost you £70 plus VAT to do the combined Conveyancing Practice and Risk & Compliance courses.

If you sign up to our annual subscription service, for just the cost of the two update courses, you will receive the added value of the Financial Crime core course and 5 CQS Policy and Procedure documents. For more information on this subscription service contact us here.

If you are only interested in our self-service option, please follow the information provided below.
