The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) is looking into who and what should be regulated as they look into playing a more active role in the legal technology industry. As more and more firms are bringing technology and innovation into the legal sector the SRA have said they must look into regulating these new technologies as they outline their strategy up to 2023.
The SRA believe that if they get involved now it could help to increase access to justice and integrate ethical standards at an early stage in the technology sector.
Anna Bradley, SRA chair, said: ‘Technology has the potential to help address the problem that far too many people struggle to get the legal help they need. We want to help unlock those opportunities for the users of legal services and for the profession. And in this fast-changing world, we know regulators need to be on the front foot. Our new strategy sets out our commitment to looking ahead and finding new ways of working with other organisations to best serve the public.’
