SRA Handbook consultation - Our consumer and solicitor survey results

On 1 June the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) published its 'Looking to the Future' consultation. If the proposals outlined in the consultation are accepted it will enable solicitors to work for unregulated entities providing unreserved legal activities. We believe that this would leave clients with less protection and could result in a 'two-tier' solicitor profession.

Over the summer, we spoke to solicitors and the public to gather opinions and evidence about the possible impact of the proposals. Feedback from these discussions helped us build our response to the SRA Handbook consultation.
