Legal Profession Task Group: Legal careers information resources

The AGCAS Legal Profession Task Group has coordinated the production of a range of legal careers information resources, designed to help careers professionals working with current and prospective law students.

The Voluntary Code of Recruitment for Trainee Solicitors represents best practice in legal recruitment and promotes diversity and equality. The code has been created as a recommended standard of good practice for employers, students, HE careers advisers and faculty staff for the recruitment of trainee solicitors. AGCAS, the Association of Graduate Recruiters (AGR), Junior Lawyers Division of the Law Society (JLD), and the Law Society of England and Wales are all signatories to the 2015 version of the code. This latest version of the code will be in operation for the next recruitment cycle, ie for trainees who are recruited in the academic year 2015/16 and thereafter. For the current recruitment cycle (2014/15), firms who are signatories will still be working to the previous version of the code (where offers for training contracts are made from 1st September onwards).

AGCAS member services wishing to make The Good Resources Guide (available below) more widely available to their clients may upload the PDF document to their own institution's careers service website provided that:

• the most up-to-date version of the Guide is always used;
• no charge is made for access to the information;
• no attempt is made to alter the text or its branding in any way;
• AGCAS ownership is acknowledged.
