On 25 November 2019, the SRA’s new Standards and Regulations will come into effect. All solicitors will have to get to grips with completely new SRA regulations, including:

  • A new set of Principles
  • Two new Codes of Conduct (one for solicitors and one for firms)
  • New SRA Accounts rules
  • Specific requirements for COLPs and COFAs
  • New ways of providing legal services including self-employed freelance solicitors
  • New regulatory and disciplinary procedure rules

The changes mark a shift away from prescriptive rules and outcomes to a much greater emphasis on high level principles, standards and ethics. Our workshop will be relevant to all COLPs, COFAs, risk managers and solicitors (whether in private practice, in-house or unregulated businesses) and will provide practical examples of how these changes will impact you and your business and what steps you will need to take to be and remain compliant.

Cost to attend: MLS Members £50.00 + VAT (£60.00) Non Members £75.00 + VAT (£90.00)
