How co-ordinated training helps you to reach your full potential

This is a proven, well-refined training programme, which we’ve successfully delivered for the last five years. Training is structured over 24 months and offers practical, first-hand experience of working in four different departments during the placement.

I learnt something new every day! This provided for a really challenging and interesting training contract.”

Trainees gain an invaluably broad skill set, with experience in both contentious and non-contentious areas of law. After 2 years of new experiences and learning, trainees select the specialism they’d like to pursue.
