We will shortly be automatically enrolling all solicitors currently registered for the children’s duty scheme onto the 2020-21 duty plans.
The new duty plans begin in June and run for 12 months.
We’re doing this to simplify the process for you. Normally at this time of year we ask firms that wish to be on the Children’s Duty Plans to submit an application to us.
Please remember to email Margaret Russell if there are any:
If your firm wishes to join the duty scheme, please see guidance on our website on how to register, eligibility criteria and your responsibilities.
If any firm doesn’t wish to be auto-enrolled onto the 2020-21 duty plans, please email Margaret Russell.
