Best Practice Framework for In-House Training Contracts

bptcfAspire, together with LexisNexis In-house, is excited to announce the launch of the ‘Best Practice Framework for In-House Training Contracts’ (the Framework) – a guide developed by those who have trained in-house and who believe in-house training contracts are a credible alternative route into the legal profession.

About a year ago, a group of in-house junior lawyers brought together by LexisNexis formulated the Aspire Best Practice Working Group with the aim of sharing their knowledge and experiences of working and training in-house.  This led to the creation of the Framework to encourage other in-house legal teams to take on trainee solicitors.  In today’s competitive market, it’s in-house legal teams that could help to improve access by opening up new training opportunities.

The Framework is a tool for general counsels, training principals, supervisors and trainees, and distils some of the confusion around what is required of an in-house training contract provider, by pinpointing the necessary materials available to assist with establishing and providing an in-house training programme.  It aims to guide the user through each step of the training contract process and offer advice (through the experiences of the Aspire Best Practice Working Group) on what makes a great in-house training programme.

We hope the guide proves to be a useful tool for those who engage with it, and welcome any feedback about how it could be improved.  Please do get in touch by contacting
