We offer up to 70 places over two highly regarded summer vacation schemes and one winter vacation scheme. If you join us, you will be working alongside partners, associates and trainees for up to three weeks in key practice areas such as corporate, finance and litigation. You will experience the role of a trainee first-hand through drafting documents, attending meetings, doing legal research and where possible, attending court. Your hands-on learning will be complemented with tailored workshops, discussions and social events – giving you the chance to experience the best of all worlds.
We have an intake of up to 75 trainee solicitors each year, composed of law and non-law graduates. Our two-year training contract is split into four six-month periods of work experience known as 'seats'. As a trainee solicitor, you will move around four different practice areas during this time to gain as much experience as possible – one of your seats will be in either our corporate or finance group, and another in one of our litigation teams. You will also have the option of spending time in the second year of training on secondment to one of our international offices or to the in-house legal team of a major client.
