SRA Competence

A, B


This course will be of benefit to legal practitioners new to this area of law and those who seek to understand the administration of a deceased estate from start to finish.


Previously the 'A to Z of Probate', this very popular practical workshop course traces the administration of a deceased’s estate from first instruction to file closure. This course uses practical examples and case studies to take you through the process from start to finish.

By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Follow a transaction from first instruction to completion.
  • Understand IHT calculations and IHT exemptions and relief that apply during life time and death.
  • Understand the purpose of statutory advertisements
  • Describe the Inheritance Provision for Family and Dependants Act 1975
  • Recognise the steps you will need to take to protect yourself and your firm against claims in negligence.
  • Advise beneficiaries and executors with confidence.

"A certificate of completion will be provided by BPP Professional Education Limited upon request, following attendance."

Under the SRA’s new approach to continuing competence, solicitors are expected to use the Statement of Solicitor Competence to identify and address their learning and development needs. The competence statement requires the following competencies:
  • A - Ethics, professionalism and judgement
  • B - Technical legal practice
  • C - Working with other people
  • D - Managing themselves and their own work
  • Course Dates
