"There's focused on-the-job training. We’re involved from day one to gain experience and 'learn by doing'."

"In the first six months of the training contract you're expected to attend 2-3 training lunches a week. These are very helpful."

"The training sessions on offer are a good introduction to different seats and your role as a trainee, but you learn best from doing and the firm emphasizes that."

"There are weekly departmental training sessions for trainees. PSL's within departments will also give separate talks and hold sessions on legal updates. This helps you to develop both legal understanding and commercial awareness."
