The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) is the organisation which regulates the conduct of solicitors in England and Wales.

After a considerable re-think, the existing handbook has been substantially revised and new SRA standards and regulations come into effect today (25th November 2019).

The new regulations are based on seven essential principles:

Solicitors should act:

• In a way that upholds the constitutional principle of the rule of law, and the proper administration of justice;
• In a way that upholds public trust and confidence in the solicitors’ profession and the legal services provided by authorised persons;
• With independence;
• With honesty;
• With integrity;
• In a way that encourages equality, diversity and inclusion;
• In the best interests of each client.

There will now be a separate code of conduct for solicitors and law firms. Solicitors will also be able to carry out freelance and unregulated work.

A key aspect of the new regulations are the new Accounts Rules which have been streamlined with a clear and primary focus on the need to protect client money.
