Don’t just take our word for it
It’s one thing to hear about our culture. It’s another to experience it for yourself.
With Easter and summer placements, and open days at our UK offices, there are lots of opportunities for you to discover what it’s like to at Addleshaw Goddard.
Our placements have been nominated in the ‘Best Vacation Scheme’ category for three years running at the LawCareers.Net awards. You’ll sit alongside lawyers in various departments, attend court trips, conduct case studies and join workshops that show you the skills you’ll need as a Trainee lawyer.
GDL, LPC & DIPLOMA
Start as you mean to go on
Our lawyers come from a variety of different backgrounds, each one bringing a fresh perspective that allows us to deliver all-round expertise. We welcome applications from non-Law students, and we’ll guarantee you a place on an LPC course at BPP Law School and cover the cost of your course fees. We will also pay the course fees for the GDL as well as for students studying the Diploma. In addition to covering training costs we provide maintenance payments to help you while you study.
Tailored to you
Your two-year training contract will cover four six-month seats over the divisions.
You’ll receive training that’s tailored to your needs and interests, accelerating your development. You’ll also gain a first-hand insight into life at an expanding and progressive global law firm.
Alongside Lawyers, Trainees and Associates, you’ll be responsible for delivering work that will test and extend your knowledge and skills. You’ll be accountable for developing key relationships, and we’ll support you all the way. Because we’re an open, meritocratic firm, if you show real initiative there’s no limit to how far, or how quickly, you can progress.
Light your own way
Your four six-month seats will give you a combination of skills and experiences, as well as the insight you need to specialise and qualify.
We encourage our Trainees to spend time on secondment. In the UK, this could be with a range of clients, from FTSE 100 companies to large banks and businesses. As we’re expanding our international network, some of our lawyers have also recently been seconded to major cities including Moscow, Paris, Berlin, Madrid and Mumbai.
