Trainee solicitors – don’t sleepwalk into admission problems at the end of your training contract!
The SRA Training Regulations 2014 came into force on 1 July and require trainee solicitors to maintain a record of training that contains details of work they’ve done and which cross-refers to the (90+) prescribed skills in the SRA Practice Skills Standards (the standards expected of all newly qualified solicitors on admission).
Unless your training principal can affirm that you have a ‘full and complete’ training record in accordance with the SRA Regulations, they will not be in a position to sign off your ‘AD1’ form for admission as a solicitor at the end of your training contract.
