Future trainee Solicitors


The SRA has recently consulted on a number of proposed changes to its regulations, including removing the requirement for students to apply for student enrolment and approval of their academic stage of training prior to commencing the LPC.

If you have been offered a training contract, you need to make sure the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) has checked your "character and suitability" to be a solicitor. This may take at least six months to complete if you have:
• Committed certain criminal offences
• Been found guilty of an academic offence
• Had serious financial issues (such as bankruptcy, Individual Voluntary Arrangements or County Court Judgments)
• Been subject to adverse regulatory findings
• Demonstrated any other behaviour that we would not expect of a solicitor (for example behaviour that was dishonest, violent or discriminatory) Please take a look the SRA Suitability Test 2011 for more information and fill in the eligibility application if you need to tell them about any issues. If you have nothing to tell the SRA, you can inform them of this when you and your employer let them know your training is due to start.
