Gowling WLG recruits 25 trainees a year in total, with this number roughly split between the two offices. Trainees have four six month seats: real estate, contentious, non-contentious and another seat of your choice. There are a variety of different practice areas to get involved in, from environmental law to medical defence. You will also have opportunities to do a client secondment or work in an office abroad, as well as some pro bono work.
While doing your training contract, you will receive support from a partner mentor to provide you with support as well as feedback, and will complete a Professional Skills Course. Trainees also rave about the firm’s active social club with tickets for popular events, drinks, and an annual party.
Vacation schemes offer the chance for you to get involved in the work of a solicitor. Gowling WLG has also announced that its candidates for training contracts for 2023 will be recruited solely from their vacation schemes, making the scheme even more important.
You will receive support and constructive feedback from a trainee and a qualified lawyer, as well as time to socialise and chat to trainees.
