The SRA chair has been reappointed for a further three years following a decision by an independent panel.
Anna Bradley will continue in the role until December 2024 having originally joined the organisation in January 2019. Her appointment was confirmed by a panel chaired by Elizabeth Filkin CBE, the former parliamentary commissioner for standards.
Bradley has already overseen a period of significant change, with the introduction of new standards and regulations, extra transparency rules and the establishment of the SRA as a distinct legal entity within the Law Society group. The Solicitors Qualifying Examination will go live later this year following its development during her time as SRA chair.
Bradley said: ‘The SRA has made good progress in delivering an ambitious reform programme, including implementing the new Standards and Regulations and rolling out the Solicitors Qualifying Examination, which marks a step-change in how people join the profession. Looking ahead, our new strategy embraces the potential that innovation and technology has to help people access the legal services they need.’
