Our recruitment and training philosophy is very simple: our success as a firm depends on our ability to attract and retain the brightest and most able people. Our two-year training contract is split into four six-month periods of work experience known as 'seats'. As a trainee solicitor, you will move around four different practice areas during this time to gain as much experience as possible: two of your seats will be in our corporate and finance groups, and another in one of our litigation teams. You will also have the option of spending time in the second year of training on secondment to one of our international offices or to the in-house legal team of a major client.
As a trainee solicitor at Hogan Lovells, you will be offered work that sharpens your mind. You will take on as much responsibility as you can handle relating to client work, as well as a comprehensive legal skills training programme, regular reviews and appraisals. After qualification, continuous training and development will remain a priority – in fact, you will deepen your professional and business expertise throughout your career. By making the best of your expertise, we can enhance the quality of advice we provide to clients, develop our reputation, and most importantly help you build your career.
Training contract applications for law students will close on 31 July 2016.
