SCL has a special offer for trainee solicitors, trainee legal executives, trainee paralegals, and pupil barristers
You worked hard to pass all those exams and now you have secured that precious training contract or pupillage. SCL understands that being a trainee is not easy, particularly in these times of Covid-19 lockdown and uncertainty, so we have a very special offer.
Trainee solicitors, trainee legal executives, trainee paralegals and pupil barristers are entitled to apply for free membership of SCL for a maximum of two years or until they qualify - whichever comes first.
We want to encourage you in honing your knowledge of tech law and support you at this exciting and challenging time in your career. Even if tech law might not be an area for future specialism, it is hard to imagine a commercial lawyer of the next generation who does not have a good competence in all tech law issues (at least until we’re all replaced by robots).
This category of membership will include full access to the content of the website and attendance at SCL events at the members' rate but not a hard copy of the SCL magazine. Prospective new members who are trainees should apply to firstname.lastname@example.org
A copy of the SCL membership application form is available to download here.
After you've qualified you'll be invited to become a fully-fledged professional member.
This would ordinarily cost £145 per year but as a special incentive we offer your first year’s membership for just £110.
Plus, you can attend your first meeting for free (t’s and c’s apply, please see below*).
