Every summer we select between eight and ten outstanding individuals to begin training contracts with the firm in two years’ time.
Final seats are always spent in the team which the trainee will be joining on qualification. This helps to facilitate the transition from trainee to solicitor. All trainees receive a solid grounding in commercial, litigation, private client and property law by sitting in four seats that focus predominantly on each of these four areas.
A high degree of involvement is encouraged under the direct supervision of solicitors and partners. Trainees attend an induction programme and regular internal lectures. The training partner reviews trainees' progress at the end of each seat and extensive feedback is given.
Law students may apply at the end of their second undergraduate year. Non-law students may apply at any time from October of their final year. Graduates may apply at any time and we welcome applications from those coming to law following a career change.
