Trainee Programme

The Training Scheme

Chambers Student True Picture 2018Hodge 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.

Triple Lex 100 Winner

Lex 100 is the Student’s Guide to the UK’s premier law firms. Each year trainees are asked to provide anonymous feedback on their training contract and to rate their experiences according to several different criteria. The survey results provide potential candidates with a valuable inside look at different firms, allowing them to make a more informed decision as to which employer may be the right match for them.

This year we are pleased to announce that Hodge Jones & Allen is a triple Lex 100 Winner in the client contact, job satisfaction and work quality categories.
