SRA Disciplinary Powers
What disciplinary powers does the SRA have against Legal Executives in Recognised Body or ABS?
It is possible for the SRA to fine a Chartered Legal Executive where it decides that the Chartered Legal Executive breached the relevant rules. The SRA can also refer the matter to the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal who have the power to impose a section 43 order against the Chartered Legal Executive which will prohibit the Chartered Legal Executive from working in a law firm without the prior approval of the Law Society or to CILEx Regulation who have the power to suspend or exclude the Chartered Legal Executive from membership of CILEx and thereby revoke their Chartered Legal Executive lawyer status. Only CILEx Regulation can exclude a person from membership of CILEx.
