Training Contracts

Our training contracts offer a hands-on, exciting entrance into the world of law.

Why Harrison Clark Rickerbys?

We provide a complete spectrum of city-quality legal services to business and private clients from the heart of some of the most beautiful towns and cities in Britain. With a team of over 460 legal advisors and employees, we pride ourselves on our exceptional quality of service and client care.

Choosing a law firm to undertake your Period of Recognised Training with is one of the most important decisions you will make in your legal career, and not one to take lightly. You’ll have to consider the areas of legal work you want to work in, the nature of the firm you want to work for, whether you’ll get proper training and also the opportunities that you’ll have to secure a permanent role at the end of your training period. However, we think that we offer an exceptional place to train, and unique learning opportunities you won’t find anywhere else.

How to apply

To be eligible for one of our training contracts, you’ll need to have the following qualifications:

  • A Levels: 3–4 A Levels in ‘core’ academic subjects, equating to at least 300 UCAS points.
  • Degree: A 2:1 or above, although this doesn’t need to be in law. If you read a non-law degree, you’ll need to take the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL).
  • LPC: The Legal Practice Course must be undertaken by everyone who’s secured a training contract or is seeking to secure one. This course is usually a one-year, full-time course and aims to prepare students for work-based learning while providing a general foundation of practice.

The application process for a 2020 Period of Recognised Training is now closed.

The application process for 2021 applications will re-open in early 2019.

We look forward to receiving your application in 2019.
