What is a Training Contract?
A training contract is a crucial step in becoming a qualified solicitor. It's a two-year period of structured training and practical experience, providing a hands-on opportunity to apply legal knowledge in real-world scenarios under supervision. At the PM Law Group, we ensure our training contracts offer comprehensive exposure to diverse legal areas, fostering professional growth and development.
Who is Eligible for a Training Contract?
Eligibility for a training contract typically requires completion of a qualifying law degree (LLB) or a non-law degree followed by a Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL). Additionally, candidates need to successfully complete the Legal Practice Course (LPC) before commencing their training contract. The PM Law Group welcomes applications from driven individuals passionate about pursuing a legal career.
