Foot Anstey recruits around 12 trainees every year, and each one completes six seats lasting four months each. This variety allows trainees to learn more about different practice areas, thus helping them to discover what they would like to specialise in after they qualify.
Trainees work directly with clients, completing tasks like drafting contracts and reviewing existing documents. Trainees also receive regular feedback from senior lawyers. There is even a mentoring scheme at the firm, in which trainees receive support and advice from a partner.
Client secondments are common at the firm, with trainees getting the chance to provide legal and business support to a wide range of clients. When trainees return, they find that they can advise clients better, as they gain a better understanding of the challenges faced by clients.
Aside from legal work, trainees have plenty of opportunities to relax and unwind. Recent initiatives include a weekly wellbeing hour where trainees can do whatever they want for an hour, as well as regular socials.
Foot Anstey highly recommends that those interested in the firm complete a vacation scheme. The experience allows you to learn if the firm is right for you, gain legal work experience and showcase yourself to improve your chances for training contract applications.
Vacation schemes at the firm last a week, and give applicants the chance to experience life as trainee lawyers. Candidates are assigned to a specific legal team and complete real life work, allowing them to gain hands-on experience. Aside from legal work, a variety of talks allow candidates to learn more about Foot Anstey and what makes them different from other law firms.
