The firm’s training contracts are streamed so that as a trainee you would either undertake a training contract based within the Personal Legal Services or Business Legal Services division. Trainees will have three training seats and a qualification seat. This allows trainees to gain practical experience in diverse areas of law, whilst maximising retention opportunities.
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.
