Rule 7: Terms and conditions of authorisation
The authorisation of a body under these rules entitles:
If a licensed body carries out a range of legal and non-legal activities (a multi-disciplinary practice or "MDP") the SRA's jurisdiction will not generally extend to cover the "non-legal" activities of the licensed body (unless covered by a specific condition on the licence). Such non-legal activities may be regulated by another regulator, and some activities may not fall within the regulatory ambit of any regulator. The SRA's jurisdiction may also not extend to some non-reserved legal activities in accordance with the terms of the licence.
