Attendance of solicitors at local authority Children Act meetings

The SRA Handbook (version 21) was replaced by the SRA Standards and Regulations on, and with effect from, 25 November 2019.

This guidance explains how paragraphs 1.1 to 1.4 of the Solicitors Regulation Authority’s (SRA) Code of Conduct for Solicitors, RELs and RFLs apply to local authority Children Act meetings.

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.
