Solicitors Regulation Authority Solicitors’ Education Research

Survey of English and Welsh adults on behalf of the SRA on solicitors’ education

  • A substantial majority of English and Welsh people are in favour of consistency in assessment for trainee solicitors. Almost four in five (79%) English and Welsh adults say that everyone should pass the same final exam to become a solicitor, and a similar proportion (76%) say that they would have more confidence in solicitors if they all passed the same final exam.
