Trainee Solicitor 2009-2011

I chose Edwin Coe LLP for three reasons:

Quality of training:

As a trainee at Edwin Coe no day will be the same. Expect to be given responsibility at an early stage and to think on your feet. In return for your efforts you will benefit from structured training and invaluable experience gained from Partners who are leaders in their field.

Firm culture:

Edwin Coe has a culture of ‘work hard, play hard’. Far from having sleeping pods in the basement this firm encourages a healthy work-life balance and organises regular social and sporting events for its employees.


Based in Lincoln’s Inn, one of four Inns of Court dating back to 1422, the firm occupies an enviable position at the very heart of London’s legal district, minutes from the Royal Courts of Justice and surrounded by specialist counsel in every area of law. Walking through Lincoln’s Inn every day is a privilege and on one occasion I have found myself in the middle of a film set!
