Trainee Solicitor – NO CURRENT VACANCIES. NEXT INTAKE START 2015. Priority will be given to work experience/Para-Legals.

We consider all applications for a Training Contract as they are presented.

Please be aware that we receive over 100 applications per week! If we are interested in you, we will make contact. Otherwise, we thank you for your application, but are unfortunately unable to respond individually.

An Upper Second Class degree, in ANY subject.

Experience, whether academic or practical in our THREE MAIN FIELDS –

Personal Injury, Employment and Family.

We have two Training Contracts and fill positions as and when we find suitable candidates.

Generally, we prefer our TS candidates to have taken advantage of our Work Placement positions.

We do take on exceptional applicants as Para Legals as and when they come to our attention.

To be considered you must be prepared to work UNPAID in a working interview. Please send your CV to Adrian Berkeley.
