Trainee Recruitment Programme

In order to qualify as a solicitor, in addition to either a degree, usually in law, or membership of the Institute of Legal Executives, a trainee has to find a position with a firm of solicitors to undertake a Training Contract, allowing  the trainee to gain hands on experience in a firm environment supplementing the mainly academic knowledge gained so far.

The Training Contract period provides the opportunity for the trainee to work across different Departments the firm has to offer and decide which specialist area to choose moving forward.

In addition to the work experience you will gain, Laceys make it a priority to ensure you are well looked after during your training. Our proven track record of retaining our trainees once they have qualified reflects this.

All our trainees have received their Practising Certificates and we have enjoyed celebrating their success with them.

We normally recruit 2 trainee solicitors a year starting in September and applications are accepted during the June and July,  just over two years before the start date.  In addition, we also provide training for Legal Executives in various departments of the firm.

Please note our next available trainee position will be for 2023.  Applications will be accepted between 1st June 2021 – 1st August 2021.

At the start of June, please email Gemma Freeman at g.freeman@laceyssolicitors.co.uk    She will then respond by sending our application form to you,  for completion by the deadline date.

  • “Laceys has provided me an excellent start to my career. My training contract was well structured but also flexible as I was able to choose the practice areas I wanted to gain experience in. I worked closely with a number of different partners and being able to discuss their practice areas with them in depth helped me decide the practice area I wanted to specialise into. The level of support I received throughout my training contract exceeded my expectations and since qualifying the level of support has continued. I look forward to progressing my career with Laceys and would recommend training with Laceys to anyone starting their legal career. ”
