More on the Proposed Legal Education Review
Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010
Look what happens when you google legal education–Tony Soprano
pops up! What are we coming to?
Following on from my previous post
, there have been some interesting contributions around the blogosphere worth reading.
Richard Moorhead at Lawyer Watch
warns us that there is very little evidence around and we are going to need proper research for this review to work. Amen to that.
Stephen Mayson in his paper
–with which I agree in part–argues for removing the training contract. Why not? It’s really a form of indentured servitude that lets the legal profession get recruits on the cheap and erects a barrier to entry.
And Charon QC has more links
on this. It’s going to run and run. And I have a feeling that it’s not going to turn out the way the legal profession thinks it will. At some point the Law Society and the Bar Council will have to wake up to the fact they are not the only players in the game now–bit of a rude shock though.
