We are now recruiting for our 2020 Traineeship Programme and look forward to receiving applications from suitably qualified individuals who would like to pursue their career in a modern, innovative firm.

Applications should include a CV giving information on education, qualifications and any other relevant experience along with a covering letter (no longer than one page) explaining your reasons for seeking a traineeship at Davidson Chalmers. The closing date for applications is Monday 29th October 2018 and it is expected that a shortlist of candidates for interview will be selected in early November 2018. 
Interview dates to be confirmed.

As a modern, innovative firm, Davidson Chalmers offers trainee solicitors the opportunity to become involved in a wide range of commercial legal matters working directly for a Partner in a team including other qualified lawyers.

Being a people business, we also remember to take time out for social activities (with clients & each other).  And we remember that graduates are people, who like excellent pay packages.  So we offer those too. We also meet Diploma fees for successful applicants for our Traineeships.

During the two year traineeship period, a trainee can expect to gain experience in a number of the following practice areas:

  • Commercial Property
  • Corporate
  • Dispute Resolution
  • ​Environmental, Waste & Renewable Energy

Practical work will be supported by regular training sessions where trainees are involved with qualified lawyers, including Partners, allowing trainees to gain the benefit of their insight and experience.

Person Requirements:
Degree: LLB Law and Diploma in Legal Practice by 2020
