  • At a time when many of the larger firms of solicitors are deferring training contracts and many smaller firms simply aren't offering training contracts at all, an approach to possibly consider is to undertake the BVC and then complete the Qualified Lawyer Transfer Test. Two years equivalent to a training contract would need to be worked before being admitted as a solicitor but firms are often keener to offer this, as unlike formal training contracts, firms are not restricted in the number of such positions they can offer and do not have to pay for the additional courses required during formal training contracts. BVC experience, perhaps combined with some Employment Tribunal experience through the Free Representation Unit, can make an impressive application to a firm of solicitors.
