The following Practice Compliance practice note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
At the end of September 2017, the SRA launched a further consultation as part of its ‘Looking to the Future’ reforms of the SRA Handbook. The consultation, Looking to the future: phase 2 of our Handbook reforms covered:
implementation of policy decisions arising from phase 1 of its Handbook reform programme including:
the SRA’s proposed new enforcement strategy
transitional arrangements for the introduction of the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE)
The consultation also included two tables setting out where sections of the existing Handbook are moving to and an outline of the proposed contents of the new Handbook.
This consultation did not cover:
professional indemnity insurance and compensation fund arrangements—these are the subject of separate consultation as part of the SRA’s wider review of financial protection arrangements
the SRA’s proposals on transparency and information requirements for firms—these are the subject of a separate consultation also published in September 2017. See further News Analysis: What’s in the SRAs ‘Looking to the future: better information, more choice’ consultation?
