SRA and EU referendum result

The following is the SRA's statement on the EU referendum result.

Paul Philip, SRA Chief Executive, said: "We, like everyone else, will be looking at the implications of the Brexit vote in general and for the legal market in particular. Any transition will take time and it would be premature to draw any further conclusions at this point.

"There are of course European lawyers working in firms that we regulate throughout England and Wales who may have questions about their current role or an application to practise. As it stands there is no impact on your ability to practise or apply. We will keep you updated if this position changes in the future.”
