Admission to the roll of solicitors

DBS check

Submit your Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check promptly after it has been sent to you. If this is not received prior to your preferred admission date you will not be admitted.

We are committed to ensuring that those admitted to the roll of solicitors have undertaken the appropriate training and are of appropriate character and suitability to be solicitors. In doing so, we seek to protect and promote the public interest and the interests of consumers.

We have a responsibility under the Solicitors Act 1974 to ensure that anyone admitted to the roll has complied with training regulations and is of satisfactory character and suitability. Regulation 6.1(b) of the SRA Admission Regulations 2011 requires you to satisfy the SRA as to your character and suitability by completion of the SRA Suitability Test.

The SRA Admissions Regulations 2011 set out that we may admit an individual as a solicitor if we are satisfied that they have complied with the SRA Training Regulations, Qualified Lawyer Transfer Regulations (QLTT) or Qualified Lawyer Transfer Scheme Regulations (QLTS).
