What is Equivalent means?

Regulation 2.2 of the SRA Training Regulations 2014 allows us to recognise some assessed learning and supervised work based learning. We call this 'Equivalent means'. 

To be admitted as a solicitor you must have completed: 

  • the academic stage,and
  • the vocational stage. 

 Applications for exemptions from any of the stages must be made on the relevant Equivalent means form. 

Further information can be found in our Equivalent means information pack.
