Training Contract

The firm’s training contracts allow you to see work covered within personal legal services (PLS) stream or business legal services (BLS) stream, with some trainees having access to experience both divisions where possible. You will undertake 4 x 6 month seats.

We are known for our Personal Injury work and within PLS most of the seats fall under this area and in some locations we also offer Private Wealth options. 

Within BLS our teams work nationally across seven locations and each office offers different seat options dependent on department’s availability and business need.

Please see our online brochure for further details of which seats are available in which office for PLS and BLS.

Training contract opportunities can be found in the following locations.

The firm is looking for ambitious and well-motivated individuals who have a real commitment to the law and who can demonstrate a positive approach to their work. Irwin Mitchell recruits law and non-law graduates and views social ability as important as academic achievement.

Each summer the firm runs a formal two week work placement which is a great way for you to gain a real insight into what life is like as a trainee at Irwin Mitchell. You will have the opportunity to gain experience in different areas of law. During your placement you will have the opportunity to attend client meetings, undertake real client work and understand our culture and way of working. 

Each year, a large proportion of training contracts are offered to those who had undertaken a Legal Work Placement, so the firm encourages all those interested in joining to apply via this route.
