Publication of the Legal Education and Training Review’s (LETR’s) research report, which is expected to recommend the most fundamental reform of legal education in 30 years, has been delayed for a second time with no revised date for when it is likely to be released.

The LETR, a joint project of the Solicitors Regulation Authority, the Bar Standards Board and the Institute of Legal Executives Professional Standards, has been under way since June 2011.

Its research report was scheduled for December 2012, but was delayed until 16 January 2013.

However, on 11 January 2013 the SRA’s website warned that the report was to be delayed still further: ‘Given the weight of evidence and in consideration of the importance and complexity of the review, the commissioning regulators have agreed to allow the LETR research team more time to finalise the report.

‘A date for publication will be issued shortly.’
