All solicitors in England and Wales need to keep up to date with the rules governing their conduct and the responsibilities and obligations that the SRA imposes on them.

The SRA Handbook sets out the standards and requirements the SRA expects solicitors to achieve and observe for the benefit of the clients they serve. This new edition will enable them to understand the latest changes and obligations, updated to version 21 (6 December 2018).

Key changes in this new print edition include:-

  • introduction of the SRA Transparency Rules 2018 - these rules aim to ensure that members of the public and small businesses have the information they need to make an informed choice of legal services provider, including understanding what the costs may be and the regulatory protections that apply
  • changes to the SRA Financial Services (Scope) Rules 2001 and the SRA Financial Services (Conduct of Business) Rules 2001 to reflect the Insurance Distribution Directive requirements
  • changes to the SRA Minimum Terms and Conditions of Professional Indemnity Insurance (Appendix 1 to the SRA Indemnity Insurance Rules 2013) - these amendments remove a barrier to firms who wish to leave SRA regulation and switch to another approved regulator
  • consequential changes to the SRA Handbook Glossary 2012.
Conveniently containing the updated Code and the Accounts Rules in one place, this handbook is essential to the work of all solicitors in England and Wales. The SRA Handbook is regularly updated online at www.sra.org.uk.
