Legal Traineeships

Thorntons trainees are part of the team from day one.

Undertaking your 2 year training contract with us offers you the best foundation to grow your legal career as we offer a stimulating, varied and comprehensive programme of learning across different legal specialisms.

Thorntons trainees are part of the team from Day 1 and following participation in a 4 day Induction Programme each trainee is provided with a mentor and a Supervising Partner to support them on their learning journey. In addition to completing your Trainee Continuing Professional Development Programme as outlined by the Law Society of Scotland trainees are also afforded the opportunity to undertake some on the job learning and participate in internal seminars and learning events.

Over your two years with us you will experience four seats each of 6 months duration and this can be in a variety of legal areas from corporate law, to litigation, to private client matters and in any of our locations. In these seats you gain direct client contact and will be required to assist on a number of tasks from undertaking research, drafting client replies, and legal writing.

With our increasing variety of work types and an opportunity to learn from some of the best legal talent around, we offer an excellent training ground for individuals, supporting and developing your technical and personal skills with opportunities to work in our Edinburgh, Perth, Arbroath, Forfar and Dundee offices.
