About the SRA Handbook
The SRA Handbook sets out the standards and requirements we expect our regulated community to achieve and observe, for the benefit of the clients they serve and in the public interest.
The Legal Services Board (LSB) approved the Handbook on 17 June 2011. The key implementation date was 6 October 2011.
Version 12 of the Handbook was published on 31 October 2014. Read release notes for Version 12, or choose from the options on the left to browse Version 12.
Our approach to regulation is outcomes-focused and risk-based, so that clients receive services in a way that best suits their needs. More about outcomes-focused regulation
