The SRA standards are seven principles representing the fundamental rules on ethical behaviour that the SRA expects everyone working in the legal profession to uphold.
The principles must be upheld both inside and outside the work environment. This may also include in your private behaviour, including on social media.
With remote working, less supervision and fewer opportunities for face-to-face training, it’s never been a more important time to make sure your staff are up to speed on the SRA Standards and Regulations.
SRA Standard and Regulations: A Practical Overview covers SRA standards, regulations, and account rules, delivering the information in easily digestible bite size nuggets. The course is designed to be relevant to everyone in a firm, including fee earners, support staff, partners and in-house counsel.
Why case-study led SRA training?
Most staff will have gone through the more in-depth SRA courses which detail and explain the changes made to the system in previous years. This refresher course doesn’t repeat that, and any new joiners are still encouraged to complete the full version of our SRA Standards and Regulations course.
But like a booster shot, our course delivers a timely, 20-minute addition to existing SRA training. It’s an entirely case- study led course. Drawing on dozens of decisions by the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority, SRA: A Practical Overview uses real life case law to highlight the seven SRA principles and accounts rules. The course breaks down cases where others have got it wrong, showing what the failing was, how it happened, and how it can be avoided.
Training that covers the grey areas
Unfortunately, things are not always black and white. Sometimes actions wander precariously close to the line of what is acceptable and what is not. That’s why for the first time we’re covering grey areas, as well as possible breaches that were perhaps dismissed by the Tribunal, or never quite made it that far.
Understanding the potential for what could have been and demonstrate important lines staff should steer well away from. When there is less room for supervision, it’s important to give staff as much information as possible to understand ethical dilemmas and make good decisions that stick to the right side of the rules.
