Law Society Whatsapp group
Firstly The Law Society says it's appalled to learn of inappropriate comments posted on a Whatsapp group by some of its students.
Highly offensive messages were allegedly posted in a Whatsapp group about female trainee solicitors.
The Law Society says it takes the allegations extremely seriously.
It also says if they are proven to be true, disciplinary action will be taken.
It has blocked WIFI access to private messaging groups and counselling services have also been providing supports to students.
The Director of Education at Blackhall has issued a warning to all students that trainees are subject to the same ethical rules and regulations as practicing solicitors.
