The Law Society has issued a practice note on the equality and diversity requirements of the SRA Handbook.

The practice note covers:

  • The Equality Act 2010;
  • The SRA Handbook (Principle 9 and Chapter 2 of the SRA Code on equality and diversity);
  • Meeting the regulatory requirements (Outcomes 2.1-2.5 in particular);
  • How the Law Society can assist a practice to comply.

The note includes “examples of behaviours which may enable adherence to the outcomes, as well as examples of behaviours which would not”.
