The Solicitors Regulation Authority is the regulator of solicitors and law firms in England and Wales. We work to protect members of the public and support the rule of law and the administration of justice. We do this by overseeing all education and training requirements necessary to practise as a solicitor, licensing individuals and firms to practise, setting the standards of the profession and regulating and enforcing compliance against these standards.
We are the largest regulator of legal services in England and Wales, covering around 80 percent of the regulated market. We oversee some 192,000 solicitors and more than 10,400 law firms.
