Wake Smith is progressive and forward thinking law firm and we are looking for exceptional people with ambition, drive and a desire to succeed.
We aim to offer training contracts to candidates who have (or are predicted to achieve) a minimum of a 2:1 degree. We welcome applications from both law and non law graduates and we are looking for candidates who show enthusiasm, initiative and enjoy working in a team.
Our training contract opportunity consists of four seats of six months each, over two years, and usually includes seats in our Company Commercial, Commercial Property and Clinical Negligence departments.
As a trainee solicitor with Wake Smith, you will be an active, fee earning member of each department you join. The intellectual challenges can be formidable, but a combination of formal training, personal coaching and commercial responsibility will help you evolve into a successful lawyer and an effective member of our team. The level of client interaction will vary from seat to seat and from deal to deal, but basically we want you to get involved as early as possible.
We are now recruiting for our September 2020 and September 2021 trainee solicitors. Deadlines for submitting applications are below:
September 2020 application deadline of 30 November 2018
