Legal Services Commission 2008 Training Contracts Scheme launched

YLAL welcome the LSC’s increase in the number of training contact grants to be made available for the next scheme.  While we had asked that the number of grants be doubled given the difficulties faced by young committed lawyers trying to find training contracts as many legal aid firms wind down their work, we are pleased that the LSC has increased the number of grants from 100 to 150.  The Commission’s press release can be found at
