• Professional Development for trainees

    Trainee Litigation Programme

  • Providing an in-depth understanding of the major litigation issues

    Gaining experience of the litigation process is an essential part of a legal training contract. Our two-week Trainee Litigation Programme is designed to give trainee solicitors experience equivalent to that gained during a contentious seat, offering an ideal alternative for trainees who may not intend to practise in this area. 

    The course is two parts, consisting of five days of face-to-face tuition, practical exercises in the classroom and individual written work to give you a dispute resolution portfolio covering the main issues in commercial litigation. This is followed by a second week in the legal advice centre advising clients on a pro bono basis. You can choose to do only the classroom part of the course if you would prefer to organise your own pro bono week.

    The programme is available as in-house training, with a limited number of public places available for interested individuals and can be delivered throughout the year to meet your requirements.
