How to apply

You will need to create a mySRA account if you don't already have one.

Before you apply for admission to the roll of solicitors, you must have completed your screening. This is carried out for us by Atlantic Data. Find out how to apply.

There is also an option to complete an early character and suitability assessment prior to admission if you think you may have any issues.
