Lexcel v6.1: The latest version of the Lexcel Standard


We have been delighted to be work with the Law Society for the new version of the Lexcel Standard. As Lexcel assessors and consultants, its given PDA's team a keen, early perspective on the application of the Standard in real terms.


Our Operations Director, Neil Partridge, has been especially busy:

  • In May 2018, he delivered the training, on behalf of the Law Society, to all of the registered Lexcel assessors and consultants.


  • In  July 2018, at the Law Society's Annual Conference at Chancery Lane, Neil had the privilege of sitting on two of the expert Panels and delivered a session on the application of Lexcel v6.1. And, he delivered a webinar on Lexcel v6.1 on behalf of the Law Society.


  • And, during July, September, October and November 2018, Neil will be delivering more than a dozen training sessions in London, Manchester, York and Bristol, to Lexcel law firms and legal departments, to prepare them for Lexcel v6.1.



Lexcel, GDPR, cyber security, AML and best practice

The changes to Lexcel v6.1 were carefully engineered by the Law Society to support legal practices/departments in pursuance of best practice. The revised requirements set out the need for documented consideration of the management of key aspects, which are in part if not in whole, linked directly to some of the most imposing new Regulations and areas of increasing risk, to affect legal practice in recent years.

The team at PDA understands the Regulations and, critically, their application, context and linkage in everyday legal environments. 

Consequently, we not only assist practices and departments in their preparation and maintenance for Lexcel assessments; we provide meaningful support for the broader aspects of risk and compliance, too.
