In a stir
The way in which aspiring lawyers train to become solicitors could be in for a major shake-up if Law Society plans for work-based learning come to fruition. Fiona Cunningham explains the potential changes
The Law Society’s consultation paper, which outlines a proposed new framework for work-based learning, was published in August. This paper, however, is a consultation about a consultation – a full consultation is planned for October, followed by a pilot project for September 2007. It is highly likely that much of the detail will change during this period, however it seems clear that some change in the process of qualifying to become a solicitor will be the result.
