Lanyon Bowdler Training Contracts

We are delighted to be nominated for the 'Best Trainer - Small Firm' in the 2018 LawCareers.Net Awards.


We have previously had many nominations for the LawCareers.Net's Training and Recruitment Awards for either "Best Recruiter-Small Firm", or "Best Trainer-Small Firm". We won the awards in 2004, 2009 and 2017 (see photo above). We are delighted to receive this recognition of the standard of our trainee solicitor training programme.

Lanyon Bowdler take on four 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.

Trainees usually spend six months in each "seat", so they have experience in four areas of work.
