Llamb and Christie: Law Training Contract
Your training will be based on seats that vary between two and five months, in order to expose you to different departments or practice areas, where you will sit with a partner or an associate.
At the beginning of your training contract you will have the opportunity to suggest areas in which to tailor your training, whether that is in regard to international secondments or individual seat lengths.
We are principally concerned with are Banking and International Capital Markets. As such a considerable part of your training contract will be focused on bringing you up to speed with our actions in these areas. and as a trainee you will spend at least twelve months of your training contract gaining experience in at least two of these areas. There will also be a heavy focus on Litigation.
After the initial twelve months trainees have the opportunity to apply for international secondments. These are designed to increase our trainees’ understanding of our wider, international emphasis and their nuances of working within differing legal systems.
Pro-bono work is also an increasingly prominent trait amongst our most successful trainees. We strongly encourage all trainees to seriously consider expanding their knowledge of the legal sector through this means.
