  • SRA attitude smell of racisim

    The proposal of SRA is totally vague and smells of discrimination between developed and developing countries. Apart from race issue this is anti competitive in nature and falls under Article 81 (1) EU. This proposal needs to be scrapped immediately.

  • Scottish Dual Qualified Lawyers ???

    So this means then that Scottish Dual Qualified Lawyers who may be associates or partners in their own firms would have to undertake the equivalent of a year's traineeship with an English firm before they can practice????

    Ridiculous !!

  • fear absolute

    This goes to show a growing fear about the determination and success of Lawyers/Solicitors from outside the English soil. Is this another " ALL ANIMALS ARE EQUAL, BUT SOME ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS."? It is very difficult for the newly qualified English Law Graduates to get training positions with Law Firms , how much more for foreigners. This is equivalent to asking the QLTT candidates to go through another degree programme in an English University before they can they can be deemed fit to practice.

  • Not so unreasonable

    This review of the QLTT regulations is to be welcomed. Only in England can a qualified overseas lawyer take a simple test to be admitted as a solicitor.
    Most, if not all, other European countries impose much more stringent requirements and require a period of practical training. The QLTT's open book exam & 50 hours of study are no way near enough to prepare a non-common law lawyer for our legal system.
    To the Scots lawyer who is complaining about the possible changes - what are the chances of an English lawyer being taken on by a firm north of the border? Practically zero!
