Upcoming events

We organise and take part in a wide range of events and conferences. Come and meet us to find out more about what we’re doing.

Upcoming events and conferences in which we'll be participating are listed below. To book a place or find out more about non-SRA events, please contact the organisers directly.

If you would like to view previous events please visit our on demand events.

If you would like to invite an SRA speaker to your event, all requests must be submitted using our speaker request form. Please do not contact individual members of staff directly.

We consider the following when reviewing each request:

  • how topical the event is to SRA work and priorities;
  • availability of appropriate speakers; and
  • size and suitability of the audience

Please note as a public sector regulator we are unable to accept invitations where we feel that one of the main purposes of the event is to:

  • promote the work or services of a specific commercial organisation; or
  • generate new business or other revenue creating opportunities for the host/organiser/third parties

Compliance Officers Conference 2021

23 November 2021| International Conference Centre, Birmingham / YouTube

Our annual Compliance Officers Conference will once again be taking place in November.

Many of you have told us that you are keen to get back to face-to-face events, while others liked the option to be able to join virtual sessions spread over a week.

So this year there’s two ways you can get involved – either face-to-face at our Birmingham event, or by joining our virtual event running throughout the following week.

Both events will offer the latest updates and insights on topics relevant to your compliance role, including:

  • Cybercrime
  • Anti-money laundering
  • The Accounts Rules
  • Common compliance issues
  • What does technology mean for compliance
  • Our Standards and Regulations
  • Benefits of transparent information
  • Ensuring continuing competence
  • The Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE)

You can also hear from our Chair and Chief Executive, who will be discussing the big issues in the legal sector.

These free events are aimed at compliance officers, but will cover topics relevant to all solicitors, and could be of interest to anyone working in the legal sector.
