Congratulations to SM&B client, the Bureau of Investigative Journalism (BIJ), who has received a grant of £800,000 over two years...
We offer trainee lawyers an exceptional opportunity to gain experience in an open and diverse environment with Partners and lawyers who are leaders in their fields.
Our period of recognised training currently provides trainees with the opportunity to gain experience in these major practice areas: Media, Corporate, Commercial and Finance (including Film and TV and IP, Broadcasting and Tech), Media: Content and Disputes (including Libel, Privacy and Reputation Management), Dispute Resolution, Employment and Family.
Applications from both law and non-law graduates are welcome. However, the successful candidate will need to be able to demonstrate they have passed the LPC to an appropriate standard and are entitled to work in the United Kingdom without any additional approvals by commencement of the training contract. You should be able to demonstrate a consistently high level of academic and personal achievement, independent thinking and a desire for excellence.
We usually have one intake of trainees each year commencing in October. Our application window is 1 May to 31 October each year for intakes commencing in two years’ time.
Applications for training contracts must be made using our application form which can be found here (no other supporting material will be considered). We do not sponsor candidates through their vocational training.
Ewan Keen is the Training Principal.
