We are renowned for delivering a personal, professional and practical service, and prides itself on its commitment to offering traditional and personal services, particularly having expertise in agriculture, property, tax and trust work.  We strive to meet the challenges of today’s legal environment, constantly seeking to improve and update our services, embracing innovation and information technologies to better serve our clients.

 

The Role

Hibberts LLP is excited to announce an Autumn 2024 Qualifying Solicitor Programme (QSP) for Trainee Solicitors.  This 2-year Training Contract is an exciting opportunity for aspiring solicitors to kickstart their career within our highly reputable, multi-service law firm.

Here at Hibberts, we operate a somewhat traditional approach to training contracts where you will work across a range of practice areas and assist with client caseloads. You will experience four six-month “seats” across different departments in the firm giving you a rich learning experience and development opportunities.

You will have the opportunity to enrich your understanding of Law and develop your practical skills, processes and practices. As a Trainee Solicitor, you can expect to support and assist in the drafting of agreements and applications; participate in client meetings; perform legal research; draft correspondence, legal statements and other legal documentation; participate in team meetings and contribute to the development of our business.  You will also have a learning and development plan, in line with the SRA Practice Skills Standards.

 

The Successful Candidate

While the SRA no longer requires aspiring solicitors to complete a law degree to be able to qualify, here at Hibberts LLP we still require all future trainees to either complete a law degree or the Postgraduate Diploma in Law (PGDL).  The successful candidate must have completed either:-

The Legal Practice Course (“LPC”) (or Master of Law and Practice – which incorporates the LPC)

Or

Part 1 of the Solicitors Qualification Examinations (“SQE”)
