Formal Training

8.1 / 10

(based on 13 ratings in 2015)


"At the start of my time with the firm I went through a three week training and induction programme in London. Thereafter, I have regularly received training throughout my training contract both through the professional skills course electives and through internal workshops. I have developed numerous non-legal skills including developing client relationships, how to prepare and present effective presentations as well as identifying personality types."

"I have benefitted most from the one-to-one training with my supervisors"

"Training is very impressive here, but I have found that the best training is the informal work on the job and is provided by solicitors/partners in the team."
Second year trainee, London
"I have found that most training occurs on the job, but there is formal training at the beginning of the training contract, and you can always request more if you like."

"The introductory training programme for trainees is well-rounded and enjoyable. Additional mandatory learning such as the LLMIT insurance syllabus is particularly useful for those with a limited academic background in insurance law. Regular know-how lunchtime seminars covering different parts of the firm's practices are freely open to all trainees and are in my experience, wholly beneficial."

"Formal training was based on communication, writing, conversing, legal structures, procedure, etc."
First year trainee, Sheffield
"There is a clear emphasis on training at the firm. Solicitors and partners are always inviting you to attend client meetings, and seminars from experts and counsel."

"We have a week long induction to the firm and then regular updated training sessions both online and in person."
First year trainee, London
"There are various internal training programmes which solicitors can partake in, such as seminars and workshops. However, as I am only four weeks in this question is quite difficult to answer right now."
First year trainee, London
"So far, the training has been perfect - we received lots of training before we started (on top of the PSC). We also do various industry exams and training which is great for setting you apart from the other trainees coming with NQ's in the industry."
