Who we are looking for

There is no typical type of Michelmores trainee. We seek to recruit a diverse range of individuals. What they all have in common is that they can demonstrate the skills and attributes needed to become an outstanding solicitor.  

Skills and attributes

We are looking for people who are academically strong, logical thinkers, practical problem solvers, and who are flexible in their approach to life. Successful applicants will be well-rounded individuals who are able to demonstrate that they have drive and enthusiasm. We want team players, who relish responsibility and challenges and are as passionate about the success of the Firm as we are, and want to be involved in that success from day one. 


Ideally you will have received A,B,B at A-Level (not including AS or General Studies) or equivalent and will be expecting to achieve a 2:1 or above at degree level.  Our offers are also conditional on candidates passing the LPC on their first attempt.

If you did not achieve these results but you feel that you can offer something that will make your application stand out, then please apply and we will, of course, consider your application. You should be aware however, that competition is extremely fierce.


To be eligible to apply for our summer vacation scheme and training contracts you need to be in a position to start a training contract in two years time.  That means, if you are studying law, you will need be in your second year of university study (or beyond) and for non-law students, you need will need to be in your third year (or beyond).
