Lanyon Bowdler Training Contracts

We were delighted to be named winner of 'Best Trainer - Small Firm' in the 2017 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 and 2009. We are delighted to receive this recognition of the standard of our trainee solicitor training programme.

Lanyon Bowdler take on a minimum of two trainees each September, so with training contracts usually being for two years we generally have at least four trainees with us at any one time.

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