Training Contracts

At Kew Law, we believe in learning by doing. You’ll be supported throughout your training while gaining valuable experience inside our talented teams.

Your Legal Career Starts Here

Kew Law is an excellent place to begin your career, with our training contracts for law graduates. Trainees are the life blood of our firm. Over a third of our solicitors trained here and remained with us after qualifying.

Your path to qualification will usually start with a paralegal position which, if both parties agree, will progress onto a training contract.

Paralegal stage

You will be given new opportunities for learning and will make a valued contribution to the teams that you work with. Your work will vary and, depending on which practice area you join, might include:-

  • Assisting with drafting and negotiating documents
  • Carrying out legal research
  • Preparing client engagement letters and fee agreements
  • Responding to queries from clients
  • Opening, archiving, filing and closing client files
  • Updating databases and spreadsheets

Training stage

It is here that you will received your recognised period of training, or qualifying work experience (for those pursuing qualification through the Solicitors Qualification Exam route). You will develop the required competences needed to practise as a solicitor, and work more closely with fee earning staff undertaking varying degrees of client work.
