At Brodies you can expect to work in an environment that is challenging and rewarding. You will get exposure to quality clients and some of Scotland's leading lawyers.

Recruiting, retaining and training the best legal talent is fundamental to the success of our business. We do not seek to hire a 'typical' Brodies lawyer but instead place a huge amount of importance in securing people who clearly demonstrate great potential for the future.

A traineeship at Brodies will provide you with the right skills base to develop your career. It will equip you with the legal expertise and acumen necessary to become a solicitor who can provide the legal service our clients are looking for.

During your traineeship you will experience work in a minimum of three business areas and you will have the opportunity to work in various locations including the Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow offices.

We have seats in Litigation, Employment, Real Estate, Corporate, Banking, Restructuring & Insolvency and Private Client. Through these departments you can gain exposure to specialisms such as Banking, IP/IT, Construction, Projects and Family Law. You will also have access to a quality IT system that exploits IT to meet the needs of the clients and the firm.

You will be involved in quality work right from the start of your traineeship ranging from client contact, involvement in a real estate deal to preparing papers for court. We will do our best to keep you busy and you can be assured that there will be little time spent at the photocopier!
