During your two-year Training Contract, you’ll spend six months in four key practice areas, referred to as ‘seats’. In each seat you’ll have a supervisor who acts as your work provider and mentor, and a Trainee Partner who is responsible for overseeing your progress.
Our seat rotation policy ensures you experience at least three distinct areas of law, including Contentious Law. A number of departments offer contentious experience, including Dispute Resolution, Employment, Intellectual Property and EU, Competition & Trade.
Corporate work is at the heart of the Firm and all Trainees are required to complete six months in a transactional seat during their Training Contract. The Graduate Recruitment & Development team will discuss your interest in particular departments, which is considered in-line with business needs.
Midway through each seat, you’ll have an informal review to discuss your progress and development. At the end of each seat, there’ll be a more formal evaluation with a Trainee Partner who will provide feedback on your progress and experience.
