How to Apply
Applying for a Training Contract
The deadline to apply for our 2023 training contract has now passed. From early November 2021 you will be able to apply for our 2022 Vacation Scheme and 2024 Training Contract via our website. We are waiting for changes to be implemented in our recruitment form, these changes will incorporate the SQE so candidates progressing through this route will be able to include the relevant information. Due to these updates the exact live date of the firm is not yet confirmed. Any update will be communicated here.
Please be aware that the closing deadlines are 31 January 2022 for the Vacation Scheme and 19 June 2021 for the Training Contract, you will not be able to submit applications beyond midnight on these dates. If you have additional needs and requirements due to a medical reason, disability or social economic reason that prevent you from completing the online application form in its current format please contact our graduate recruiter Jenny Sanghera, to discuss alternative arrangements or provisions for you.
For candidates who are interested in applying to both the vacation scheme and a training contract, you are very welcome to apply to both at the same time. If your vacation scheme application is not successful it will not impact your application for a training contract.
Should you apply for your training contract early to meet the vacation scheme deadline you are still able to log into your application form any time before the training contract deadline to add additional information. You may choose to do this if you secure further work experience, attend additional industry events or receive additional academic results.
Please be aware that we do not recruit on a rolling basis, all applications are reviewed after the relevant deadline has passed.
Applications are welcome from all disciplines. The earliest an application can be made for a training contract is in your penultimate year of your Law degree or final year of your degree for non-law students, we do welcome applications from candidates who are past this stage too. We seek candidates with strong academics and our minimum entry requirement is an obtained or expected 2.1 in either a law or non-law degree. We do not have a minimum A-level grade requirement but we do ask that you submit this information so we can see your areas of interest at school and a picture of your academic progress as you continue your studies.
