This chapter begins with a description of how the legal services market is undergoing change, with the Solicitors Regulation Authority’s (SRA) code of conduct, referred to as the outcomes-focused regulation code (OFR Code), being replaced by the SRA Standards and Regulations (‘Standards and Regulations’). It considers what being a member of the profession and a good solicitor means, the Handbook, the regulations of the OFR Code currently in force, and the proposed changes expected when the Standards and Regulations come into force. It then looks at the practical application of the principles, outcomes, and indicative behaviours which are most relevant to readers at this stage of their legal career as a student and trainee.
