Law Society supports efforts to tackle solicitors who 'tout' for criminal legal aid work

31 October 2016

The Law Society is pleased the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) is increasing its efforts to investigate the problem of touting after we expressed concerns about it to them earlier this year.

We met with the SRA recently to discuss the issue in more detail. As with the vast majority of our members who uphold the highest standards of professional behaviour we welcome any effort to tackle touting.

Members who do not comply with their professional obligations have a negative impact on those who do. That is why we are working with the SRA to address problems when they are brought to our attention.
