Solicitors are trusted and all must comply with the professional ethics and standards, which are set by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA).
As repeat cases before the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal (SDT) highlight, sometimes things go wrong.
This webinar explores when you are obliged to report your concerns and how to report them to the SRA. It covers:
- common concerns in private client work
- the public interest and client’s best interest - the new SRA misconduct agenda
- when you should report concerns about misconduct
- how you should report concerns to the SRA, and
- thinking ethically.
This webinar is discounted by 20% for Risk and Compliance Service members.
