Backdating training contract
This page provides a list of firms’ deadlines for training contract applications so you can keep track of when your target firms have their training contract deadlines.
You should also check out the vacation scheme deadlines page.
The best way for you to collate all of those deadlines that are of interest is to save the firm to your My LCN account, where the related deadlines will be automatically added to your personal My Calendar.
Just click 'Add to My LCN' on the firm’s directory page.
This article will try to unpick the various legal threads of when you can and cannot backdate documents, and what the consequences will be if you do.
The first and most important thing to note about the consequences of backdating a document is that it is potentially a criminal offence.
Parties seeking to enforce rights can find those rights barred by ancient common law doctrines like (“from a dishonourable cause an action does not arise”).When we say “backdating” what we usually mean is executing a document and then dating it with an earlier date than the actual date of execution, with the intention that it should be treated as giving rise to legal rights before the actual date.
