Traditionally our profession has assumed the responsibility of ensuring that there is a sufficient number of new entrants into the profession, that they are properly trained and that their quality is of a sufficiently high standard. The method of training is twofold. The universities provide the academic education and the profession itself provides the practical training through the system of articles followed by examinations set by the law societies. Now that the academic education of attorneys has been upgraded by the introduction of the B.Proc. degree as the minimum qualification, the time has come to give attention to the improvement of the practical training.
