Training Contract Structure
We offer training contracts each year with an intake in September. Your two year training contract with Bevan Brittan will be made up of four six month seats offering you the opportunity to gain experience across our practice areas. We also offer the opportunity to undertake a part-time training contract, and a part-time study training contract.
We offer trainee seats across all of our departments; Clinical Risk, Commercial & Infrastructure, Litigation, Advisory & Regulatory, Employment and Property.
From the outset you will be given real responsibility. The emphasis is on getting stuck in, learning and enjoying yourself. You’ll be taking part in client meetings, doing your fair share of research and drafting and attending court hearings from the off. Inevitably there will also be routine tasks to complete like photocopying or proof-reading, but this will help you to understand what goes into shaping deals and managing matters.
Supervision & Support
We believe it is crucial that our trainees have access to an extensive support network. For each seat you will be supervised by an experienced lawyer. You will also have a trainee buddy (usually a second year trainee) and there is a dedicated member of the HR team who is always available to answer any questions or generally offer advice. This support is further bolstered by each trainee having a dedicated mentor (a more experienced solicitor) to provide advice and guidance.
We hold regular trainee meetings where trainee related matters and initiatives are discussed, and trainee experiences are shared.
Not all work...
Here at Bevan Brittan we work hard to promote regular sports and social events. There is a Social Committee in each office which our trainees are welcome (and encouraged) to join. There are also various firm sports teams including netball and football.
The firm’s corporate responsibility strategy means that we are heavily involved in various pro bono, volunteering and fundraising activities throughout the year.
