© 2018 The Association of Law Teachers.The Legal Education and Training Review final report on the regulation of legal services education and training was published in June 2013. Five years later, members of the research team reflect, in this article, on subsequent developments in the relationship between regulator and regulated. They explore the links between out-comes-focused regulation (OFR) and the hierarchies within the regulatory space and between the OFR-driven focus on competence and its impacts on assessment for qualification and continuing competence thereafter. Finally, they extend the concept of shared space to include the relationship between regulators who commission research and researchers who carry it out. The paper concludes that the project has attracted international interest and informed other projects. Although there is already clear impact in England and Wales, the full significance of the report in the canon of seminal reports into legal education will emerge over the next decade.
