As a forward-thinking and innovative personal injury specialist, there has been no better time to start your legal career with us

Our training contract programme is a great way for graduates and aspiring solicitors to take the next step on their career journey through the legal industry. By undertaking a number of ‘seats’ within the two-year training programme, trainees gain experience in different areas of the business in order to maximise their knowledge across a range of subjects and gain the practical experience and commercial skills required to be a great solicitor.

Our improved trainee solicitor programme introduces a business seat within an external organisation, partnering with The Association of Consumer Support Organisations to create a secondment programme that provides trainees with valuable insight into the wider civil justice system.

“The experience has provided me with commercial insights and a ‘big picture’ awareness that could not be paralleled at this stage of a career in civil justice.” – Daniel Bates, Minster Law legal trainee solicitor

We believe that business acumen is more important than ever to the success of our solicitors. The successful introduction of our ‘business seat’ to our training contract programme is part of our continued commitment to helping develop and shape our solicitors into well-rounded legal professionals.

The business seat enables trainees to work alongside a member of our senior leadership team so that they can understand all aspects of the business and see the contribution the solicitors make to the wider company. The three-month placement encompasses a wide range of activities generally focused around a company-wide project, including sitting in on departmental meetings, conducting research, liaising with departments inside and outside of Minster Law, consumer research, and data analysis.

“The business seat gave me a unique opportunity to participate in meetings I’d never have otherwise attended, having spent all my time in Operations. And this gave me invaluable insight into how what I do for my clients now has a major impact on the business’ ability to form new partnerships, maintain our existing relationships and elevate our profile in the wider industry in the future.” – Matthew Itson, Solicitor, Serious Injury
