"The firm places serious emphasis on training, with weekly/bi-weekly training sessions throughout the LPC year and training contract."
First year trainee, London
"Good training is offered across different practice areas."
Second year trainee, London
"The training programme is good. We have two training sessions a week on a variety of practice areas to broaden our knowledge and skills."

"Trainees are regularly contacted by the KM group to ask what training would be most helpful. Training tends to be quite focused and the resources are useful takeaways. I have found that sometime however, training comes after the event and you have already had hands on experience."
Second year trainee, London
"My supervisor is very supportive and prepared to offer help and advice whenever needed. We are regularly required to attend training seminars which provide us with background knowledge of important issues relating to the matters we are dealing with."
First year trainee, London
"As Cleary allows you to take on as much as you can handle I have been exposed to lots of different practice areas and tasks already; such as research into case law, negotiation on an M and A deal, drafting of documents to make the deal happen. You get exposed to really high-level work quite early on."
First year trainee, London
"We are free to request additional training sessions on any topic here."

"Quite a varied training programme - you see a wide variety in training and in early years of practice, also the opportunity to participate by phone or video conference in talks in other offices. Specialist seminars also."
First year trainee, London
"Training tends to be far less formal than at other firms. There is a series of lunchtime seminars for associates and trainees, which is helpful in learning practical drafting skills and for overviews as to areas of law not covered on the LPC."
Second year trainee, London
"We have a lot of training, a session nearly every other week with a partner or a senior associate on an area of practice, and weekly updates at lunchtime with the whole firm on various topics and areas of law."
First year trainee, London
"Training is usually twice a week over lunch or first thing in the morning. It's usually enjoyable, if somewhat difficult to absorb. In any case, I can't see how it could be done any better; most learning is on-the-job, as it's meant to be."
