The Trainee Solicitor role

We are currently recruiting for our September 2021 Trainee Solicitors. In this role you will undertake a two-year period of recognised training (this period will be longer if you are undertaking a part-time training contract). During this time, you will develop skills and experience, drafting, legal research, interviewing clients, negotiating, business development and much more.

You will rotate seats throughout your contract experiencing at least three areas of law as well as contentious and non-contentious work. To ensure you flourish in the role, we will provide you with regular supervision, feedback and support, enabling you to shape and grow your career at the firm.

What areas of law will I experience

The areas of law you may experience are Corporate and Commercial, Commercial Property, Family and Relationships, Employment Law, Litigation and Dispute Resolution, Planning Law, Probate and Estate Administration (including Wills and Trusts) and Residential Property. During your contract we will ask you to nominate which seats would like to experience, but this will be dependent on business needs. We aim for your final seat to be the seat you qualify into.

What qualifications do I need?

You need to have passed your LPC by September 2021 or to either be studying or about to study your LPC part-time.
