  • There are some benefits to the Acculaw model in that it allows for firms which previously could not afford to take on any or many trainees to do so and possibly in allowing access to training for those who might have non-standard backgrounds which would see them rejected at the paper stage when applying direct.

    However, overall I think it will be a retrograde step if it simply reduces the cost to larger firms like Olswang of trainee recruitment. Cutting off the investment that firms currently make in trainee recruitment, training and retention in terms of time and care as well as money may lead to trainees becoming commoditised. It is hard to see how this would be consistent with firms continuing to believe in developing their own talent and using that as a way of strengthening their own brands and reputations for quality and professional style.
