Implementing whistleblowing arrangements

This practice note will help you to understand your obligations to raise concerns and report to the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA). It will also help you to develop a whistleblowing policy.

This practice note is relevant to employers in SRA-related practices.

It may also be of interest to other organisations with in-house solicitors, whether supervised by another regulatory body or not.

Guidance for individual solicitors can be found in our practice note on raising concerns and whistleblowing: guidance for staff.

This practice note is the Law Society’s view of good practice in this area, and is not legal advice. For more information, see the legal status.
