The requirements

We recruit 12-14 trainees firmwide each year. We seek high calibre candidates with enthusiasm and resilience. A high standard of academic achievement is expected: three or more good A-Level passes and preferably a 2:1 or better at degree level. Clarity of expression, written and oral, and reliability in research are important to us. There should be mental flair (to see solutions in the wood amongst the trees!) and flexibility (to move easily between complex, concurrent matters). On the personal side, we look for self-confidence without arrogance, good humour, openness with discretion, a good team spirit, and, above all, integrity. 

The benefits

Full fees and a maintenance grant are payable for the LPC.  Life assurance, critical illness cover, pension, private medical insurance, 24 days’ holiday (minimum), interest free season ticket loan, and sports and social events.
