Your Invitation to Become a Member of
Solicitors’ Growth

Dear Valued Colleague,

Did you always dream of being a lawyer? Maybe you wanted to be that heroic trial lawyer you saw on the screen. Maybe you wanted to make a difference in the world and help people. Or, maybe you just wanted to make a decent living for yourself.

Whatever the reason you became a solicitor, you’re probably pretty good at it by now. You’ve learned your profession well and maybe you’re living your dream. You’re certainly helping people and for them at least you are making a very important difference in the world.

But it can be a lonely profession, can’t it? We don’t need to tell you.

We often say about ourselves as solicitors that we are paid to worry about other people’s problems. It feels that some people are happy to dump their problems on us and we end up worrying about them far more than they do; often not getting paid to do it at all – or certainly not getting paid well enough.

It can be an overwhelming, all-consuming job.

You regularly feel like you would need a machete to chop through thickets of unread emails and unanswered phone calls.

And of course, when we are away from our desk those emails are probably pinging on our phones, it is almost impossible to resist the urge to check, early morning and late at night. Turn your back on that inbox for a second and there is a proliferation of hundreds of unread emails. Take a holiday and, well, there are thousands.

And then there’s the Statute and the million other dates and deadlines we have to keep track of, relentless increasing burden of regulation and administration. We have AML, enhanced due diligence, Solicitors’ Account Regulations, S. 150 and let’s not get started on PII.

The constant worry is that we are going to miss something, something will fall through the cracks, we might drop the ball

You’re not alone. We get it. We know how it feels.

Oh, and then there’s our mandatory CPD requirement that we’ve got to ensure we complete every year. You know that feeling coming up to the end of the year, adding up bits of hours here and pieces of certs there to see if you have them all covered.

Sound familiar?

We’ve all been there.

And we all know that there has to be a better way.

We loved providing you with the CPD webinars throughout 2020 and we could see the community that grew up around them was something truly wonderful that needed to be fostered and developed for the benefit of all those who had come together around this unique phenomenon.

So we decided to create something new for you in 2021 that we are very excited about and that we think you are going to love.

We wish to invite you to become a member of Solicitors’ Growth.

Through The Solicitors Growth Webinars, we provide you with full compliance with all of your CPD requirements for the year while also bringing you together with your solicitors colleagues facing the same daily challenges of private practice to learn the tools and strategies you need to work smarter and with a clear direction so that you can create the life and career you want and can finally begin to enjoy it all!

What Do You Get

As part of this exciting new departure for legal professionals, you will get the following:-

A minimum of 20 hours CPD per annum (which will include all of your Management and Professional Development and Regulatory CPD Requirements for the year).

We believe that this has the potential to be one of the most important developments in peer to peer member support in this profession, well, ever! And we are seeing exactly this develop and grow everyday with our current members and this amazing community.
