London: Thursday 16 January 2020.
The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) regulate solicitors and law firms across England and Wales. That means that they set the standards for entering the profession and how solicitors and law firms practise, stepping in when things go wrong. They are working to help make sure that people, including those who find themselves in vulnerable circumstances, can access high quality, affordable services when they need them.
This group discussion is to consider the SRA priorities over the next few years, alongside their corporate strategy. Along with a sharp focus on high professional standards, they are looking at doing more to work with others to address complex, cross-sector problems of consumer protection.
Building on the work of the Legal Access Challenge, they are particularly interested in the development of legal technology that can offer accessible and affordable help for the many people who can’t currently find what they need. This is one of the key issues the SRA are grappling with as they develop their strategy.
