The majority of our training contracts are offered to participants in our vacation scheme program.
The training contract is divided into four six-month seats, in which trainees can experience in corporate transactions and litigation/international arbitration. The second year provides an exciting opportunity to gain exposure to other offices or practice areas in advance of qualifying as a solicitor, including undertaking an international seat in our Brussels, Hong Kong or New York office.
We pride ourselves on our broad and comprehensive training programme. In addition to completing your Professional Skills Course, you will have a regular training schedule. Drawing upon the experience and teaching abilities of our partners, associates and qualified external consultants, we also offer weekly training seminars, workshops and updates for associates at all levels and across our practice areas.
Shortly after qualifying, associates attend Skadden’s firm-wide retreat in New York to participate in an intensive four day program (with associates in the U.S. and German offices) that provides business and legal skills training.
Throughout your training contract, a qualified solicitor will mentor you and provide advice and guidance whenever required. You will receive regular performance reviews and appraisals from the training principal and your supervisor, who will take a proactive role in shaping your development and progression.
