Experience four key practice areas over the course of two years and enjoy all the support you need to qualify as a Solicitor.
What our Training Contract involves
A Training Contract gives you the chance to experience four of our key practice areas for six months each.
Our rotation policy ensures you experience different areas of law, including contentious law and, because corporate work is at the heart of our Firm, you’ll also complete a transactional seat.
The programme begins with a two-week induction, but you’ll be exposed to live work and make a real contribution right from the start. Throughout your Training Contract, you’ll be able to call on the personal and professional support of both our Graduate Recruitment & Development and Leadership & Learning teams.
The Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE)
From September 2021, the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) will introduce a new route to qualification, which will transition the current qualification route of a Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL), Legal Practice Course (LPC) and Professional Skills Course (PSC) to SQE 1 and SQE 2 exams and two years of Qualifying Work Experience.
There will be a transition period up to December 2032, when the current route to qualification will be completely phased out. Many firms in the sector are currently reviewing how this impacts the recruitment of their trainees so keep an eye out for updates.
