Druces LLP: a dynamic, sector-focused firm

Our trainee application window is now open for Trainees for our 2026 and 2027 Training Contract opportunities and is open to applicants qualifying either under the LPC route or the SQE route.

Druces is a firm which is proud of its long history, but equally proud of the way we invest a great deal in staying relevant to our current and future client base through professional development, industry engagement and market analysis. We want to be a firm that leads the debate in our chosen sectors and, to that end, we are involved in a number of collaborations which position Druces as a thought-leader.

What are we looking for in our trainees?

We want to see bright, creative minds join our expanding team. Our firm values people skills and creativity as much as academic achievement; and trainee recruitment is an important process for the firm. We invest a lot of time and energy in the process as we are recruiting for the firm’s future, looking for dedicated and committed individuals who will contribute to our continuing success and develop rewarding careers.

Candidates should have completed either a Law Degree or a non-law degree with a 2:1 or above and the PGDL. We are also looking for candidates to have completed or are completing the LLM SQE1&2 course which includes the exams (the Preparation Course). 

What’s in it for you as a Druces trainee?

We will work with you and help you to become the most astute and commercial lawyer you can be. As part of your development, you will spend six-months in the following four practice areas.

·         Real Estate

·         Dispute Resolution

·         Private Client

·         Corporate & Commercial


Unlike larger firms, Druces provides opportunities for more hands-on experience and one-on-one attention from our partners and other senior lawyers. As a Druces trainee, you will get a first-class legal grounding and access to talented and approachable colleagues. Our trainees certainly enjoy honing their skills in the Druces environment.

Applicants must be eligible to work in the UK – unfortunately, given the size of the firm, we are currently unable to provide VISA sponsorship.

Please note that we are unable to provide funding for the SQE or SQE preparation courses.

What you can expect from our trainee recruitment process

Each application will be individually reviewed by a member of our recruitment team, and we will let you know whether your application will be progressed.

Please download the application form here and complete our Equal Opportunities form here.

Successful applicants will then go through a two-stage interview process, at which point we make our final decision. 

The closing date for applications is 9th August 2024 at 5pm.
