Discharging your training contract

At the end of your traineeship, usually after two years, your training contract must be discharged. This is a vital stage of the traineeship because a solicitor is not entitled to hold a full (unrestricted) practising certificate until this process has been completed.

The requirements of trainee continuing professional development must have been complied with and all PEAT 2 quarterly performance reviews must also have been completed for the discharge to be processed.

Please email legaleduc@lawscot.org.uk to request the relevant paperwork for both admission (stipulating if it is to be for admission after one or two years) and discharge.
