Period of recognised training
A period of recognised training (often known as a training contract) gives individuals supervised experience in legal practice. This is the final stage of the process of qualification as a solicitor where they refine and develop their professional skills they will need to practice.
Trainees can qualify as a solicitor under one of the following set of regulations:
- Trainees that started their period of recognised training on or before 24 November 2019, they need to meet the requirements within the SRA Training Regulations 2014.
- For trainees registered with us since 25 November 2019, it is the Authorisation of Individuals Regulations and the Education, Training and Assessment Provider Regulations.
