Admission to the roll of solicitors
The SRA Authorisation of Individuals Regulations set out the education and training requirements for those seeking to be admitted as solicitors, and to exercise higher rights of audience in the higher courts of England and Wales.
We have a responsibility under the Solicitors Act 1974 to ensure that anyone admitted to the roll has met the eligibility requirements, which includes being of satisfactory character and suitability.
The SRA Assessment of Character and Suitability Rules set out the kind of factors we take into account when considering your character and suitability.
