Training Contract

At Ellisons, we provide our trainee solicitors with an opportunity to gain practical experience in a legal environment whilst working with our highly skilled and experienced colleagues.  We are pleased to be able to offer both the traditional LPC route to qualification along with the new SQE route from our 2024 training contracts onwards.

We offer our trainee solicitors experience in a variety of English law areas, including opportunities to develop your skills in both contentious and non-contentious work during the term of the training contract.

Our trainee solicitors undertake seats in a variety of departments including but not limited to Real Estate, Dispute Resolution, Insurance Litigation, Corporate and Commercial, Private Client, Family and Employment.

Practice areas covered are in line with the guidelines issued by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and trainee solicitors will undertake seats in different areas of the law over the course of the training contract with us.

Ellisons is committed to offering exceptional quality training and development for our trainee solicitors.  We have a strong training programme that provides high quality legal training alongside the people skills required to develop you as a well-rounded trainee and beyond into your career as a fully qualified Solicitor.
