It is important to apply for a law training contract early to avoid missing solicitor training contract application deadlines for the law firms you wish to apply to. When you are choosing which law firm training contract you want to apply for, you will need to consider the following:
Your legal training contract will last for two years, so you need to make sure that you are applying to law firms or organisations that suit your career goals, lifestyle and your personality. This will help you to get the most out of your law training experience. For more information on the training contract application process, see our dedicated ‘Training Contract Applications’ guide.
Most law firms look to fill their training contract placements two years in advance. You should aim to apply for your legal training contract by May or June of your penultimate year at university – if you are a law student. If you are a non-law student, you should apply in your final year.
Please note, while these training contract deadlines are maintained to the best of our ability, we always recommend checking deadline dates on the relevant law firm website.
