Highgate Hill Solicitors director calls for reform of SRA
Dr Kathy Alexander, the experienced solicitor who founded Highgate Hill Solicitors and Justice for Lawyers has called on the SRA (Solicitors Regulation Authority) to improve it’s democratic accountability.
‘A committee elected by the members would enable a better understanding of the work of the solicitors, especially among the black and ethnic minority firms,’ Dr Alexander said, ‘and would allow the SRA to follow an updated and democratic approach.’
