These Guidelines were prepared by the Bar Issues Commissions Training Working Group. They
have been developed based on a detailed survey of the various forms, methods and practices used to
provide training to potential entrants into the profession in various jurisdictions around the world
and reflect the observations and recommendations made to the Training Working Group. The
results of the survey were analysed in thorough consultation with various bars and were presented to
the bar leaders who expressed an interest in having such guidelines.

The Guidelines propose best practice for Bar Associations and Law Societies with respect to the
specialised training requirements for preparing new entrants for the practice of law to become
well-prepared members of the legal profession. They are not intended to replace the curriculum
requirements for undergraduate or graduate training programmes in the various legal systems of
the world, but recognise that differing educational accreditation systems, traditions and mechanisms
exist in various jurisdictions.
