Training Contract

Join Gowling WLG as a Trainee

Gowling WLG Training Contract applications now open!

We’re on the lookout for the next generation of legal experts. Bright, ambitious, self-motivated people. People like you.

Join us as a trainee and you’ll be treated as a lawyer from day one. We invest a lot into our trainees to make sure you have everything you need to develop a successful career in law. You’ll work with a diverse range of high-profile clients on interesting, big-ticket work and learn from some of the UK’s best legal brains.

You will complete four six-month seats: real estate, contentious, non-contentious, and a fourth of your choice. This could be a client secondment, which gives you the chance to step into the shoes of a client, work in their legal team and understand what they expect from their lawyers. There are also opportunities to complete a seat in one of our international offices.

Alongside your work you’ll complete the Professional Skills Course, with modules on Finance & Business Skills, Advocacy & Communication Skills, Client Care, Professional Standards, Effective Written Communications and The Skilled Negotiator. This means you develop all the practical expertise a well-rounded lawyer needs.

The closing date for applications for our 2020 training contract is 31/7/2018, so what are you waiting for?
