To obtain a training contract (since July 1, 2014, a training contract is officially called a “recognized training period”[2]), a graduate must apply for such a job in a law firm or an in-house legal team. Law firms often recruit one or two years before the start of the planned job, so that non-legal graduates can follow the academic requirements of the law degree and the legal practice course before the start of their training contract. Some in-house legal teams prefer to recruit trainees on an ad hoc basis or promote existing legal assistants and paralaries who have proven their worth. [3] There are two types of internships in Spain; it is either curricular or extracurricular. To prove that the internship must be learned and that it is not an uncovered job, this training agreement is necessary. It must be signed by an educational institution. There are no restrictions for what type of school, which means they can be public or private (universities, TEFL schools, high schools, etc.). The agreement is signed by the sending institution (educational institution), the host society and you, the trainee. However, it is important for employers that it can also be used to indicate when a worker might be responsible for reimbursement of these training costs and how that reimbursement would work. In particular, it can determine whether these costs are reimbursed when an employee leaves the company shortly after the end of the training. In the United Kingdom, a full-time training contract is usually two years old. The second thing to think about when implementing training agreements is the idea of “trade restriction.” As we have already said, training agreements are designed to protect businesses from losing their investments – but the law will not allow an employer to use them to unreasonably prevent someone from changing jobs.

A training contract is a mandatory period of practical training in a law firm for law graduates, before they can qualify as a lawyer in the United Kingdom (UK), the Republic of Ireland, Australia or Hong Kong or as a lawyer and lawyer in Singapore. During the training, the participant is known as the Solicitor Intern[1] or Trainee Lawyer (in Singapore). Some training agreements operate in a kind of sliding scale, where the longer the employee stays in the company, the less he must be reimbursed if he decides to continue.
