I’ve been told I will need to repay it if I don’t stay on post-qualification
In the latest instalment in our Career Conundrums series, one rookie solicitor wants to know how enforceable ‘claw back clauses’ are in relation to LPC/SQE funding.
“How enforceable are claw back clauses* in relation to LPC/SQE funding? My firm has a claw back clause requiring repayment of funding in the event of not staying on post-qualification. Just wondering how enforceable this really is?”
* Some law firms have clauses in their training contract stating new recruits are liable to repay their LPC/SQE sponsorship if they leave the firm upon qualification.
