ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Legal Education and Training Group (LETG) has hit out at the Law Society of England and Wales' plans to revamp legal training in its response to the controversial training framework review. In a statement released to its members, the LETG has said that, at an open meeting of 28 law firms, two-thirds of the firms were against the proposed abolition of the existing legal practice course. So, the training framework review group's assertions can only be accepted as a triumph of naivety over experience.
