SRA Handbook (November 2017 edition)

Solicitors Regulation Authority


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.

Every solicitor in England and Wales needs to keep up-to-date with the rules governing their conduct and the responsibilities and obligations that the SRA imposes on them.

Understand the latest changes and obligations with this new edition, updated to Version 19 (1 November 2017).

Key changes to this edition include:

  • Amendments to the professional indemnity insurance requirements when a firm wishes to no longer be regulated by the SRA.

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.
