  • This seems to be a very shortsighted approach. How does Wiggin expect to have good quality senior lawyers if they are not prepared to take the time to train junior lawyers?

  • This is what Kowalski writes about in "Avoiding Extinction". I agree it seems short-sighted, but Kowalski argues that client firms are no longer willing to pay for trainees to learn from their legal problems. His "ideal" law firm does not pay to train their lawyers. I was left wondering how this squared with the idea of having a right-on approach to sustainability in other spheres.

  • The Bar pays its pupils out of the contributions of members of Chambers. There is no financial return to those who are paying. Once pupils start earning in their own right in their second six, they keep what they earn on top of often substantial payments from Chambers. The reward is strengthening Chambers with good quality tenants. No reason why solicitors shouldn't start thinking along the same lines.
