Legal education review calls for response to 'radical' proposals
The Legal Education and Training Review (LETR) has issued a call for feedback on radical proposals for reform, including the replacement of the traditional training contract with a more flexible period of 'supervised practice'. The review, billed as the most fundamental examination of legal education and training since the Ormrod report of 1971, has published the first of three consultation papers to canvas views on potential reforms, which also include the abolition of the concept of a qualifying law degree and the introduction of national assessments at the point of entry to the profession.
