Law Society launches initiative to introduce part-time training

Project Rise is aiming for part-time training to be implemented across the profession to benefit people from diverse backgrounds.

The Law Society of England and Wales’ Lawyers with Disabilities Division (LDD) has announced a cross-firm scheme, ‘Project Rise’, seeking to encourage more part-time qualifying opportunities to be offered in the legal sector.

Law firms Eversheds Sutherland and Osborne Clarke are participating in the project and have committed to offering all successful candidates the opportunity to train on a part-time basis, starting from September 2024.
