However, the challenge for the SRA is to attract people of good quality who work at the coal face. The standard of work at the SRA is, in my opinion, very low , which should be of considerable concern to solicitors. The fundamental problem at the SRA is that many case workers appear to have no forensic skills, are not aware of the evidence that must be gathered to win cases and have no idea of the legal principles to be applied when considering whether the Code of Conduct has been breached.

The SRA needs to start living up to its own aims and objectives (providing assistance, training, etc to those it regulates), only then will the profession start to appreciate that the regulator is balanced in its approach; surely this would be in the best interests of clients in the long run? I know the SRA is reviewing its approach to regulation but we need to see more action rather than just words! For the record, I am not a solicitor and so have no biase, just a wish that things would get better for all involved.
