The main focus of the organisation is to administer the examination process to ensure the quality of the membership, to provide educational and networking opportunities for STEP members at branch level and to contribute to debate and public policy in its specialist field.

The current president of STEP worldwide is Geoffrey Shindler, who was appointed in November 2006. He is a UK qualified solicitor and one of the founder members of the organisation. The current Chairman of STEP is Michael Young a Bath based practitioner elected in November 2009. Former Chairman Rosemary Marr was elected as vice-president in November 2009.
