Training contracts

Lanyon Bowdler takes on four to six trainees each year, so with training contracts usually being for two years we generally have at least eight trainees with us at any one time, and usually around ten. Trainees usually spend six months in each “seat”, so they gain experience in four areas of work. Not only do we offer our trainees support, guidance and valuable experience in the technical aspects of their work, we encourage them to be part of the firm as a whole. They have opportunities to attend careers fairs, where they can talk to students about how to work towards a future in law, there are also chances to attend events and seminars, where they can develop their business development skills.

To find out more and how to apply, the recruitment process and application deadline, please see our Training Contracts page.
