The SRA is the independent regulatory body of the Law Society of England and Wales. We do not represent solicitors but regulate organisations and individuals providing legal services including solicitors, law firms and their employees, and other lawyers working with them. We act in the public interest to set, promote and secure the standards of professional behaviour and performance, and we aim to ensure consumers receive a good standard of service and that the rule of law is upheld.
Consultations and regulatory approach covering international considerations
We are interested in a wide range of lobbying and consultation opportunities. One of our main focuses is on issues impacting the delivery of legal services across England and Wales and within other European / international jurisdictions, human rights issues, national justice systems, and consumer interest issues.
The SRA's policy team are engaged in standard-setting for all aspects of legal practice falling within our regulaotry remit.
