This inclusive webinar will discuss the key changes to standards and regulations introduced by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) in November 2019. 

In this one-hour webinar, we will discuss the revised SRA handbook, which have paved the way for solicitiors working outside SRA-regulated entities and on a freelance basis. We will also look at how we can ensure compliance to these new regulations. 

There are two dates for this webinar: 8 June and 23 June 2020, both at 2pm. Bookings will close 48 hours prior to the webinar.

This webinar will cover:

  • the key changes to the SRA Principles, SRA Codes and SRA Accounts Rules
  • the new forms of practice
  • the role of the compliance officers
  • an overview of your risk-based regulatory priorities

By attending this webinar, you will gain:

  • an awareness of the new Standards and Regulations
  • an understanding of the different expectations for individual solicitors
  • an insight into the SRA’s expectations in terms of regulation
  • suggestions for the changes you need to make
