SRA Board approves change to phase 1 of the Quality Assurance Scheme for Advocates (Crime)

The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) Board has made rule changes to extend the deadline for the first phase of the Quality Assurance Scheme for Advocates (Crime) (QASA) Regulations from 10 January to 9 March 2014, following its approval in April of the Scheme and Handbook changes for submission to the Legal Services Board for final sign-off.

The change will not affect the dates for the launch of phase two (10 March—13 June) and phase 3 (30 June­—3 October) in 2014.

The Legal Services Board is expected to give its approval for the go-ahead of the Scheme in the near future.
