On 25 November 2019, the new SRA Standards and Regulations come into effect. Replacing the SRA Handbook, the SRA Standards and Regulations stipulate the behaviours, standards and requirements expected by solicitors and other SRA regulated people.
VinciWorks has produced a whitepaper that outlines what the new Standards and Regulations will include and the challenges it presents to firms.
The whitepaper covers:
- Key differences between the SRA Code of Conduct and the new SRA Standards and Regulations
- The requirements of the Insurance Distribution Directive
- VinciWorks’ SRA Standards and Regulations training suite
- The relationship between training and continuing competence
VinciWorks to release SRA Standards and Regulations training
By 15 September, VinciWorks will release a series of online SRA courses covering the key, relevant sections of the Standards and Regulations. Written in clear, plain language, the training includes many examples, cases and scenarios taken directly from the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal (SDT) decisions. VinciWorks’ SRA training suite will help legal professionals, including support staff, to develop an understanding of the relevant regulations which apply to their specific role in the law firm.
