Would I still be regulated by the SRA if I joined a firm of licensed conveyancers?
Subject to the Council for Licensed Conveyancers
rules permitting this, you can join a firm of licensed conveyancers as a manager or as an employee. Your work through that firm will be regulated by the CLC. However, you will still require a practising certificate, and you will remain subject to rule 1 (core duties)
of the Solicitors' Code of Conduct.
