Trainee Solicitor/Traineeships/Training Contracts

Aberdein Considine offers a diverse and challenging Traineeship.

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 Trainees 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 Trainees 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 Trainees is an investment. The majority of the current Partners and Associates trained within the Firm and so we view our Trainees 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.
