Our training contracts offer the perfect route into law. Over a two-year period, we’ll give you the knowledge, tools and opportunities to make a truly successful and rewarding legal career.
Whether you are based in the UK, Middle East or Asia, your training will consist of four seats of six months each. During each seat, you'll have a supervisor who will give you regular feedback. You will also receive formal feedback through an appraisal system that takes place in the middle and at the end of each seat.
This system has been honed over a number of years to ensure that you get the most out of your time with us. Ultimately, we want to help you become the next leader in your field and hope that you’ll be part of the next generation to help drive us forward onto even greater heights.
Legal training contracts in the UK
Our UK legal training contracts give you the opportunity to experience four six-month seats over two years. At least one seat must be in a contentious area. You will also have the chance to apply for a secondment at a client office or at another Eversheds Sutherland office in the UK or internationally.
You won't simply be given a conventional development path: you’ll work closely with your supervisor to identify and build on your strengths - and we'll talk to you about how you see your future evolving. We recommend trying as many seats as possible but if there's one you really want to experience, we'll do our best to accommodate you.
Once you qualify, you’ll be able to apply for any of the vacancies on offer. As you might expect, our aim is to retain every trainee on qualification.
