ICOHow to apply


Applying for a training contract or summer vacation scheme placement at Edwin Coe is a simple and straightforward process.

Training contract

We have a dedicated application page which allows you to upload your CV and covering letter for submission to our HR team. This page also asks for a breakdown of your education history.

If you are successful, we will contact you to arrange a first interview with a member of our HR team and a senior associate. The structure of this interview will be based on the contents of your application form and will assess your skills and knowledge, relevant to the position of a trainee solicitor. At this stage, we will also ask you to review a case study and answer some questions about your understanding of the information provided.

What happens next?

The interview panel will review the answers you gave during your interview and assess your understanding of the case study. We will contact you to let you know whether you have been successful in reaching the second interview stage.

The second interview will be held with two of our partners. During this interview, you should expect to be asked a wide variety of general and business related questions. The partners will be predominately testing your commercial awareness, your suitability for a legal career and your fit with Edwin Coe.
