The qualities we look for in our trainees include common sense, a sharp intellect, independent thought, judgement and a good sense of humour.
To thrive here, you will also need enthusiasm, commitment, a willingness to accept responsibility and the ability to get on well with others.
Our work is intellectually demanding so the minimum standard we look for in our applicants is three very strong A-levels (or equivalent) and either a good 2:1 or a 1st in your first degree. Proficiency in a foreign language is a bonus but not a requirement.
Our trainees come from a range of universities: it is the quality of the candidate, not your university, which is important to us. A law degree is not essential - approximately half of our trainees have not studied law at university.
All future trainees must study the LPC at BPP Law School in Holborn, London. Those who have not studied law will also be required to study the Graduate Diploma in Law at BPP. Find out more about routes to the training contract.
