SRA set to offer fast-track qualification rights to Asia lawyers
The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) has approved new regulations for the Qualified Lawyers Transfer Scheme (QLTS) that could see the scheme expanded to a host of new jurisdictions including China and Japan. The proposed changes, which will come into effect in September if approved by the Legal Services Board, are intended to better regulate internationally-qualified lawyers seeking admission in England and Wales.
