Glovers' trainees are welcomed into a friendly and supportive environment and receive first-rate individual training. Each trainee usually spends six months or more in a selection of our four different Departments: Dispute Resolution, Commercial Property, Construction and Property Finance. Our trainees are likely to deal with a wide variety of other areas as well, for example Employment, Professional Negligence, and Liquor Licensing matters. The exact nature of work and the areas covered will of course vary depending on circumstances.
Trainees are encouraged to take responsibility for their own work under supervision of a partner, and are given regular appraisals. They are expected to deal directly with clients.
Trainees are also expected to participate in and contribute to the firms' internal seminars which are held during the year. These seminars cover a variety of topics of use to a solicitor, not all of them on strictly legal topics.
Because of our size we are able to involve all members of the firm in the development and marketing of the practice. We encourage our trainees to stay on with us when their training contract finishes if we have a suitable vacancy in a Department which interests them.
