ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Law Society is proposing to scrap the minimum salary requirement for trainees. Trainees are currently paid a minimum at £15,900 a year in Central London and £14,200 elsewhere under a scheme introduced just two years ago. However, the Training Framework Review consultation paper, published on April 4, 2005 says that under new proposals this requirement will be abolished. The consultation paper says that it is not proposed that the Law Society should set a minimum salary for trainees in the future. However, trainees employed in legal practice would have to be paid at least the national minimum wage.
