We welcome applications from both law and non-law students who are seeking to commence their training in August 2020.  You will of course have an impressive academic record with, ideally, 320 UCAS points and a predicted or achieved 2:1 degree (or the relevant academic equivalent).

We offer only up to 12 periods of recognised training each year but retain the majority of new qualifiers at the end of their periods of recognised training.  As competition for a period of recognised training is intense, those sections of our application form that focus on your drive, initiative and achievements are of particular importance.

Successful applicants will be invited to attend an assessment centre at our offices. During that day you will also have the opportunity to meet with existing trainees. Following this, you may be invited back for a final stage interview.

Our online application process will be open from 1 November 2017 and closes on 31 July 2018.
