Norton Rose is outsourcing its solicitor-advocate training to BPP Professional Development in an exclusive deal.
The firm has signed a two-year agreement with BPP in order for trainees qualifying into the litigation department to obtain their higher rights of audience.
Norton Rose previously trained its solicitor-advocates in-house, and currently has 23 litigators with higher rights. It ceased in-house training in 2005 because new trainees were the only solicitors left to take the course.
Litigation partner Helen Graham said the firm was one of the first to promote higher rights of audience to all its litigators, and added that BPP had been chosen as the firm’s training provider after it had considered several other options.
