GDPR: Supported Guidance Pack for Legal Practices

One size most definitely does not fit all. 

So says the ICO and the Law Society.


At PDA, we've seen at first hand, the damage that is done by using templates or 'borrowed' documents.

Individual alignment with the UK GDPR is essential, so we walk you through it in 5 clear stepsto ensure that the outcome is specific and, critically, individual to your legal Practice or Department.


Our Supported Guidance Pack has been prepared especially for legal practices, using insight from our having conducted bespoke GDPR consultancy and training activity with dozens of legal Practices.



Lexcel-accredited practices will find the Pack especially helpful in their compliance with Lexcel v6.1.

You don't do it alone
The Pack includes a 45 minute telephone call with one of our GDPR specialists. You can use that call to ask us questions that have arisen as you worked through the Pack, or just to sound us out on your progress.

What's in our Supported Guidance Pack?

  • The step-by-step guidance notes (in the form of a password-protected webpage)
  • A downloadable Excel worksheet; to chart your progress through the preparation
  • A 45 minute telephone call with one of our GDPR specialists (you book this with us when you have reached end of Step 2)

How the Pack works

You approach this at your own pace:

  • You use the guidance notes to support you as you review your plans, policies, procedures, registers, letters and training plans.
  • The step-by-step approach is in a logical order and you chart progress (on the Excel sheet, provided) to avoid overlooking key aspects.
  • The guidance notes highlight key points that you will need to consider in the review, as well as providing points of reference, enabling you to set up your data protection team, analyse the gaps and map your data.
  • Gather your queries together and bring them to a scheduled telephone with one of our GDPR specialists.
  • After the telephone call, you complete the updating of your documents and plan/schedule your staff training.

Sustained compliance with GDPR is an ongoing process that is the responsibility of the legal Practice. Our Supported Guidance Pack demystifies and informs the preparation, working at a pace that you choose.
