“Regulation and In-House Lawyers” is a work for SRA regulated lawyers working in-house for organisations which are not authorised by the SRA. Updated to reflect the major regulatory changes introduced by the SRA Standards and Regulations in November 2019, this second edition explains the changes that have been made, their significance to in-house lawyers in particular, and provides guidance on regulatory compliance.
Co-authored by Bronwen Still, a director of Infolegal this book is now available from the Law Society bookshop and is essential reading for all those employed in-house who wish to understand how the regulatory changes affect them. In addition to providing guidance on regulatory compliance, the book also covers key legislation such as the Money Laundering Regulations 2017, the Criminal Finances Act 2017, the EU General Data Protection Regulation and the Data Protection Act 2018, as well as recent Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal decisions.
Additional material has been added to this new edition which will help lawyers to demonstrate compliance in practice through systems, controls and policies, including templates which can be used by practitioners to create compliance manuals.
