Trainee Solicitor/Traineeships/Training Contracts

Aberdein Considine offers a diverse and challenging period of training for all of our Trainee Solicitors.

What do we do?

We are often perceived solely as property lawyers, when in fact, we are a full-service law firm. We do have a large team of Conveyancing solicitors, however their caseloads vary from residential sales to commercial leasing. Our Trainee Solicitors have the opportunity to work in our extremely successful Family, Corporate and Commercial, Criminal, Litigation, Lender Services and Wills, Trusts and Executries Departments as well as our recently established Employment Department.

What’s the training like?

We are a dynamic and forward thinking firm. We expect hard work and enthusiasm from all our Trainee Solicitors but in return we strive to balance your training with an active work related social life.


At Aberdein Considine we know that the time spent training our Trainee Solicitors is an investment. The majority of the current Partners and Associates trained within the Firm and so we view our Trainee Solicitors as future Partners and Associates. There are no glass ceilings within the Firm and those with talent, drive and ambition will see these characteristics recognised at an early stage.
