ICOTraining contract


Your training contract is the start of your career in law.

Our two year training contract gives you hands on experience and a highly personal feel. The contract compromises of four six month seats in the following practice areas:

  • Commercial Litigation & Dispute Resolution
  • Corporate and Commercial
  • Employment Law
  • Restructuring & Insolvency
  • Insurance Litigation
  • Private Client
  • Property

As part of the SRA requirements for qualification, you must gain experience in at least three different areas of law during your training contract, including one that involves contentious work. We have developed a number of ways in which trainees can gain the contentious experience necessary to meet the SRA’s requirements.

Whilst there is inevitably high demand to be seated in some areas, we seek to give you as much scope as possible to shape the direction of your training. In addition to SRA requirements we endeavour to enable all trainees to complete a seat in Corporate & Commercial and a practice area within our Litigation department.

Training confident solicitors

Edwin Coe is committed to helping trainees develop into competent and confident solicitors. You will be given the opportunity for ‘hands on’ involvement including managing your own files. Throughout your training period, there will be a continuous process of two way feedback. The firm operates an informal mid seat review and a formal end of seat review, the aim of this is to monitor your progress and support your developments over the course of the 2 years.

We recruit 2 years in advance and are currently recruiting applicants for September 2019. The application process is open from 1 January – 31 July 2017.

If you receive an offer of a training contract, you probably won’t start here for around two years. To ensure you start to feel part of the team and in order for you to get to know your peers, we will be in regular contact with you and invite you to various social events.
