The Law Society training committee is to recommend to the next council meeting in June that a £10,000 minimum salary for trainee solicitors should remain. The decision, announced in last Thursday's council meeting, follows a letter by five former Trainee Solicitors' Group (TSG) chairs to Law Society president Tony Girling, in which they threatened to warn students off a career in law if the salary was abolished. The council will now vote on the issue at its next full meeting on 5 June, when TSG chair Hannah Wiskin will address it. During last week's meeting, training committee chair Simon Baker said 2,359 firms had replied to a survey on the issue with the "majority" favouring abolition of the £10,000 limit.
