SRA Handbook reform briefing for members

On 14 June the SRA announced a series of decisions following its consultation 'Looking to the future: phase two of our Handbook reform', which took place in 2017.

It marks the end of the major programme of Handbook reforms carried out over two consultations, and paves the way to far-reaching changes to the way solicitors and their firms currently practise.

We oppose two controversial proposed changes and have lodged a formal objection with the Legal Services Board.

This briefing is designed to provide Law Society members with information about the changes and help them consider the implications for their practices.
