ANNEX 1


ANNUAL REPORT OF THE ADMISSIONS AND LICENSING COMMITTEE 2014


CHAIR’S FOREWORD


During 2014, I have enjoyed continuing to serve as Chair of the Admissions & Licensing Committee (ALC). Thanks to all members of the Committee for their hard work, commitment and good humour during another busy and interesting year.


This report reflects the volume and range of our work during 2014. During the year, we have continued to decide on Applications for Fellowship where these require input from the Committee and have also dealt with applications for Qualifying Employment. We have begun to see applications under the Work Based Learning Scheme, which came into force in June 2013, although most of those applications have been approved in the office.


A little over a year ago, the LSB approved the applications to extend practice rights for CILEX members to cover all aspects of law. The Committee has oversight of all practice rights schemes and we have started to see some initial interest in these new practice rights areas.


Finally, on behalf of the Committee, I would like to thank the IPS team for their sterling support. Their professionalism, skills and knowledge, coupled with their cheerful manner have been invaluable throughout this busy year.
