Who we regulate

We regulate individuals and firms in England and Wales including:

  • Newcastle Regulation Practitioners
  • individual members of the  (Newcastle Regulation) in other grades of membership
  • firms


What we do

We set and maintain standards in legal education, and in the work and services provided by the individuals and firms we regulate.

Our regulation is proportionate, outcomes focused and risk-based. This allows the people and firms we regulate to take their own approach to delivering legal services in the way they think best, provided that this is in the interests of their clients and the public.

The Newcastle Regulation Code of Conduct sets out the standards of professional and general behaviour we expect. Our regulated members must comply with the Code of Conduct and while we support them with this, we take enforcement action if necessary.
