"A question of trust" campaign

Our "A question of trust" campaign was launched at our SRA Board on 15 July.

Principles such as honesty and independence are at the heart of solicitors' professionalism, and we want to understand what that means in practice.

The campaign features a series of roadshows, networking events, public events, an online survey, public meetings and a formal public consultation on professional standards, all taking place between September 2015 and January 2016. By taking part in this ground-breaking campaign, you will help us to establish "common ground" on what is a serious breach of the standards expected of a solicitor, and what should happen when things do go wrong.

We will pose a series of quick-fire scenarios and dilemmas for you (and us) to vote on completely anonymously. We can promise a lively discussion on the outcomes. This is your chance to draw the line between what is acceptable and what is not.

What you tell us will inform the way we regulate in future.
