Hundreds of LPC Graduates are still struggling to find training contracts, latest figures from the Solicitors Regulation Authority show.
Last year’s trainee’s figures were on a par with 2013.
The Juniors Lawyer’s Division wishes to see an increase in the number of training positions.
The SRA removed the need for training contracts to be registered from the 1st July 2014 to which trainees taken on by a Firm would be deemed in a period of recognised training and also abolished the minimum salary.
Here at Ringrose Law we continue with our policy of training and have considered Graduates who haven’t done the LPC yet establishing them as Paralegals and thereafter offering training contract if suitable.
The over supply of LPC Graduates has been well telegraphed by those who understand the demographics and importantly the changing requirements of Legal Profession.
The problem is not going to go away.
The demand for Legal Services is changing and the future is to be seen as an opportunity as opposed to a threat.
If you are local, interested and are in or have just finished Graduate training or have already have your LPC then feel free to register with us at any of our offices at Boston, Lincoln, Grantham, Sleaford, Newark and Spalding.
