The SRA Standards and Regulations have been in force for 18 months. In that time, firms have had to grapple with new anti-money laundering guidelines, the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic and the changes to accounts rules.
In this webinar, we will be joined by the SRA’s Policy Associates Jantinderpal Loyal and Richard Silver to look back at the last 18 months of SRA compliance and what to look out for going forward.
The webinar will cover:
- The challenges presented by the pandemic and guidance for firms
- A recap of the SRA Standards & Regulations and the changes they brought about
- How solicitors and firms have taken advantage/benefited from the changes
- How firms have adapted to the less prescriptive Accounts Rules and the key risks identified by the SRA
- The priorities for the SRA going forward
- How quality indicators support consumers accessing legal services
