Our application process for 2021 traineeships is now closed. Applications to our 2022 traineeship programme open on 15 June 2020. To receive updates, register your interest with one of our colleagues today, or contact us at gradrecruit@brodies.com.

Our trainee programme is designed to give you the best learning and development opportunities available.

Three eight-month seats, across Litigation, Real Estate, Corporate & Commercial, Banking and Personal & Family, in any of our Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen offices will give you the time to learn the skills you need and to adapt your working style, to become an effective member of our team. 

Through these departments you can gain exposure to specialisms such as IP/IT, Construction, Projects, Employment and Family Law. You will also have access to bespoke technology, designed to support best legal practice.

Working alongside our top tier-ranked lawyers and their teams means you can learn from the best and get your career off to an outstanding start. 

Our traineeship focuses on giving you responsibility and ownership of your own workload from day one. The rest is up to you…



"At Brodies, we firmly believe that the success of our business is built on recruiting and developing excellent people in all roles across our offices. This ensures that our firm remains the best place for lawyers to give, and our clients to receive, top quality legal advice.

In return for an opportunity to learn about our business, become one of the team and work alongside some of Scotland’s best lawyers, we look for people who are committed to learning and who will embody our firm’s values and characteristics – to have courage, character and to care."

“Our lawyers and their teams have lots of talent and experience that you can draw upon and learn from, and they're very passionate about what they do. Our teams are always on the look-out for enthusiastic individuals and you'll be supported throughout your time in each seat by a dedicated buddy and mentor.

You will be involved in quality work right from the start of your traineeship; from getting involved in a real estate deal to preparing papers for court. We'll keep you busy and you can be assured that there will be little time spent at the photocopier!”
