Trainee programme

The Training Scheme

Hodge Jones & Allen LLP has an extremely popular training scheme for solicitors. Our successful two year Solicitor Training Programme involves four seats of six months in teams of your choice. Each trainee shares a room with a partner and is closely supervised. Most of the training is in-house with some formal courses. The work is hard but stimulating. The firm has a mentoring scheme for its trainees, whereby a former recent HJA trainee acts as a mentor for a current trainee.

Different routes to get a training contract

There are two routes into a training contract with Hodge Jones & Allen LLP.

  • Firstly, each September, there is a selection by interview for a training place the following September. We currently select four or five trainees by this route
  • Secondly, we sometimes select trainees after a period of work with us as a paralegal in one of our teams. We advertise these positions here
  • Hodge Jones & Allen presently have a total of 16 trainees.

Who can apply for a training contract?

Applications from both law and non-law graduates are welcome. You should be able to demonstrate a consistently high level of academic and personal achievement. We generally expect an upper second class degree.
