The Solicitors’ Code of Conduct is a handbook published by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and provides guidance on various issues and regulations surrounding the profession. The guidelines are in place to ensure that solicitors work within their client’s best interests at all times and to provide a quality service to the public which meets industry standards. Standards to be met are set by the SRA and all solicitors are monitored to ensure that clients and the public are protected.
The code of conduct has ten key principles which solicitors must consider when they carry out their work. They must act with integrity and uphold the law at all times. They must also not allow themselves to be compromised and must act in the best interests of every client that they represent. Solicitors must provide a proper standard of service to all clients and behave in a way that maintains trust among themselves, their clients and the public. They must also deal with regulators like the SRA and ombudsmen in a timely manner to ensure that their service is properly regulated. In addition, solicitors must run their business in accordance with proper governance and consider risk management when carrying out their work. Lastly, solicitors must protect clients’ money and assets.
