The SRA has published a report on the potential impact of removing the minimum training salary.
In producing this document, they have explored, in particular,
- the effect on salary levels and numbers of training contracts provided, and
- access to the profession and impact on equality and diversity.
BLS would encourage you to send your comments on this impact assessment to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11 May 2012.
The report, together with the comments the SRA receives, will be presented to the SRA Board at its meeting on 16 May 2012 as part of the board’s discussions on the minimum salary for trainee solicitors.
The report is 123 pages long and as part of its findings shows that a large percentage of training contracts are already at a salary in excess of the minimum salary.
