SRA says ‘one size fits all’ approach to legal training must end


The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) has set out a series of proposals to overhaul the UK’s legal education and training system, in response to a major review of the sector, which concluded in June.

In a policy statement published today (15 October), the SRA said it wants an end to what it called the “one size fits all” approach to the solicitors’ qualification, including the development of more “flexible” routes that are “tailored to specific markets and needs”.
