REL’s and their status post BREXIT

Registered European Lawyers (RELs) have now a new status in the UK following BREXIT. The SRA has announced that they will no longer be able to provide ‘reserved legal activities’ after the end of December 2020.

Further the SRA will no longer accept applications for REL status after 29 March 2020.

RELs will need to re-qualify through the QLTS and/or the upcoming SQE examination if they wish to continue to provide reserved legal services in the UK after December 2020.
