SRA Standards and Regulations training – new course to be released soon

Central London

The SRA Handbook is being replaced by the SRA Standards and Regulations, which will be in force from November 2019.

The new focus of the SRA Standards and Regulations is on each legal professional being able to justify their actions in all work that they carry out. For many legal professionals, including partners, managers, solicitors and support staff, this will require a significant change in approach. Legal professionals often only consider their professional obligations when a conflict of interest arises. However, the new SRA Standards and Regulations emphasise that legal professionals must be able to demonstrate compliance at all times.

Our scenario based course, SRA: Standards and Regulations, is customisable as-standard and includes a unique course builder, ensuring relevant training is delivered to each user based on their role within the firm.

The course will help legal professionals, including support staff, to develop an understanding of the relevant SRA regulations which apply to their specific role in the law firm. The course ensures that all employees of an SRA regulated law firm who have a legal obligation to follow the SRA Standards and Regulations have sufficient knowledge to stay compliant.
