Training Contract

Addleshaw Goddard are more than just exceptional lawyers. The firm attracts sparkling people from all backgrounds, who bring their own unique qualities, along with a collaborative approach, professional drive and a commitment to every client’s success. 

As a trainee, important cases will come your way from the get-go. You will work on everything from multi-million-pound deals to high-profile fraud cases, employment disputes to complex technology contracts. The firm’s success is intrinsically linked to yours, so they’ll always have your back and help you realise your potential.

Training contracts are four seats long, with opportunities to spend time in another of the firm’s offices, as well as on secondment with clients. During each six-month seat, you will have regular two-way performance reviews with your supervising partner or solicitor. They will help you develop the skills you need to deal with the demanding work you will come across every day. 

As well as learning on the job, you will also have access to high-quality in-house and external training, a buddy scheme in your first seat, and a mentor throughout your training contract and beyond.

The best advocates of the firm’s graduate careers are the trainees themselves. Read this article to see what four of them have to say about life at Addleshaw Goddard.

Work placements

Addleshaw Goddard offers week-long Easter work placements in Edinburgh and London, and two-week summer work placements in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, London and Manchester. And because everyone is an individual, they make sure each placement is a valuable experience for each individual student.

While at the office, you will get to know the everyday life of an Addleshaw Goddard trainee. You will be allocated a department to sit in and, if you are part of the summer scheme, will swap into a new department in your second week. You will be supervised by an experienced solicitor, who will welcome you to the department and allocate work. A trainee buddy will be on hand to help throughout your placement.

This is a scheme as unique as you are. As well as informative sessions, group exercises, assessed work and plenty of time at your desk, you will attend social events with a range of people across the office. It’s a real chance to get to know the firm’s people and their culture. Addleshaw Goddard offers training contracts to successful placement scheme students, so you’re encouraged to apply.
