Training contract overview

Accutrainee offers a unique route to qualification where trainees are seconded to in-house teams and private practice firms with secondment opportunities starting throughout the year.

Accutrainee, as your training establishment, will continually monitor and assess both the work you are conducting, as well as your development throughout your training contract. 

Our clients include FTSE 100 organisations, global investment banks and UK & US law firms ranging from large City firms to small niche practices. Your training contract is designed around you and we focus on tailoring your training contract around your preferences both in terms of practice areas and type of organisation.

To find out more about what we do, please watch our trainee video and visit our website:


  • A-Level (or equivalent)
  • Qualifying law degree or GDL
  • LPC

Whilst we look for a high standard of academic achievement, we do consider mitigating circumstances. If you have a 2.2 degree or lower A-Level grades, we still welcome your application but you must be able to demonstrate academic excellence. 

Having some paralegal experience would also be advantageous.
