Section 14 of the Legal Services Act 2007 makes it a criminal offence for non-entitled persons to undertake such activity. Under the SRA Authorisation of Individuals Regulations, solicitors are automatically entitled to conduct their own advocacy in tribunals, Coroners' Courts, Magistrates' Courts, County Courts, the Family Court, and European courts. To represent clients in the Crown Court, the High Court of Justice, the Court of Appeal, and the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, solicitors must gain the Higher Courts (Civil Advocacy) Qualification or the Higher Courts (Criminal Advocacy) Qualification.

Key Point: Solicitors need to obtain higher rights of audience through specialist training to represent clients in higher courts, such as the Court of Appeal.
