That is where you plead your case and they take it case by case. Obviously if you are going to try and get through then you will say your situation is exceptional and tbf the detail wasnt really given. I doubt the panel will warm to the OP if she presents herself as she has done on the thread.
Someone with a first from Oxford can easily look the regulations up. She also has nothing to lose.
She?

Graduated from Oxford and refer to people as white trash, coupled with your attitude and criminal convictions.

I'm guessing you stand little chance of being accepted and I hope for everyones sake this happens.

There is a slight point of detail on this. See the SRA rules on this at https://www.sra.org.uk/solicitors/ha...1/content.page.

The SRA rules distinguish between different offences.

For less serious offences, the rules say that the SRA will consider your application on a case-by-case basis. For example if you've received a local warning from the police or accepted a caution from the police for an offence not involving dishonesty (or a few other things).

For mid level offences, the rules say that the SRA is more likely than not to refuse your application if you've accepted a caution for an offence involving dishonesty (or a few other things).

For more serious offences, the rules say that "Unless there are exceptional circumstances, we will refuse your application".

I take that as saying that, if something more serious has happened, unless you can prove exceptional circumstances the SRA won't even consider the application to start with.

A caution is considered mid level offense, the op has been to prison for assault, he literally stands no chance of being accepted...

Yes I know. I have answered threads on this situation before.
As the OP is well qualified, they are capable of googling the answer in more detail by themselves. As they have managed to rub up most of the people on this thread the wrong way, then I thought i'd save myself the effort of typing it all out. The OP is plenty bright enough to be able to plead their own case.

ps your point is relevant though.
