Building on work carried out for the Law Society of Scotland in 2000, this report was commissioned by the Law Society of England and Wales to inform them with regard to the implementation of their Training Framework Review (TFR). The TFR included a series of controversial proposals designed to open up the traditional training of solicitors by enabling a wider range of routes to the profession. This report examined the ‘day one’ outcomes of a newly-qualified solicitor and by tracking backwards examined different learning and assessment mechanisms and their probability in achieving effectively the desired outcomes. The report concluded that the ‘day one’ outcomes covered a combination of skills, knowledge and work-based learning which had to be considered. The findings were deemed by many of the training providers to be pivotal in the decision by the Law Society to retain the core academic and vocational training routes.
