Training programme

Boodle Hatfield is renowned for the high quality of its training.  All trainees are involved in client work from the start and from an early stage they are encouraged to handle their own files personally, with the appropriate supervision. Our trainees therefore have a greater degree of client contact than in many other firms with the result that they should be able to take on more responsibility at an early stage.

We provide an excellent variety of seats to help you find out what which type of law is going to suit you best. Trainees spend six months in up to four of the Firm's main areas: Residential Property, Commercial PropertyCorporate, Private Client & Tax, Family and Litigation. There is also the opportunity to take a Private Client & Tax seat in our Oxford office.

Much training happens "on the job", which means that trainees gain knowledge and practical experience working with real clients. In addition to external training courses, departments run their own know-how meeting sessions and there is also a regular internal programme of seminars (often with external speakers) on a wide range of legal subjects.

On qualification, wherever possible, we recruit solicitors from our own trainees. We discuss preferences with our trainees and seek to place them in a practice area of their choice.
