"The training contract system here is still quite new and is evolving. Supervisors and associates are keen to help trainees to develop."
First year trainee, London
"There are several helpful training sessions that help you to find your feet in the early stages of your seat, but formal training is not the focus of the training contact. Instead, you are expected to learn on the job and use the free market system to get involved in as many matters that interest you as you can and to pick up skills from the brilliant lawyers you work with."
First year trainee, London
"There's a combination of formal departmental training coupled with informal ad hoc training depending on the nature of the matters being worked on. The training programme is still young, but it is improving."

"The firm organises training regularly and guests can be invited. Training aims to develop both legal and non-legal skills. For example, we get training related to dealing with health issues, being a woman in the workplace, how to cope with working and having a family, and work/life balance."
London
"It's quite new and so not well as established or tried-and-tested as at other firms but this makes it very flexible and organic. This means that, if you are engaged, it can be very tailored to your needs."
Second year trainee, London
"We receive departmental trainee-specific training, as well as departmental training that is open to all years of qualification and firm-wide training sessions on broader topics."
First year trainee, London
"Dedicated training programmes that everyone is encouraged to attend."
