On the 11th December, Nick Dudman and Kathy Hayes of Rundlewalker Solicitors Exeter, attended the 2018 COLP/COFA SRA Compliance Conference at the ICC, Birmingham. In addition to enjoying the informative presentations and breakout sessions, they also had the opportunity to meet and chat with Clive Myrie from the BBC, who was Chairing the event.

Compliance Officers for Legal Practice (COLPs) and Compliance Officers for Finance and Administration (COFAs) play a key role in the SRA's regime of outcomes-focused regulation, aimed at producing the most appropriate outcomes for consumers of legal services. The COLP and COFA is instrumental in creating a culture of compliance throughout a firm, becoming its focal point for the identification of risk, and the key point of contact for the SRA.

Through COLPs and COFAs, the SRA is promoting the benefits of closer working between the regulator and those who are regulated.
