Discharging a 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. Discharging your traineeship also means you have qualified as a solicitor!
