The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) has announced that its new regulatory regime, replacing the SRA Handbook with new SRA Standards and Regulations, will now come into force on 25 November 2019.

It has also announced that it will publish a range of guidance over the coming months. Initial documents will cover areas such as:

  • the Accounts Rules
  • practical application of the SRA Principles
  • which type of firms and individuals need authorising.
