At Clarke & Son we are focused on encouraging continuous professional development, delivered in a variety of ways to give our trainees the best chance to succeed in becoming respected professionals in the legal field.

We want to provide a solid foundation and believe this is achieved with relevant training in technical and business skills and early exposure to stimulating and a varying work. You will have the opportunity to gain exposure to clients, which we believe enhances your experience as well as career development.

This will include both contentious and non-contentious work.

We pride ourselves on the quality of the work we produce and the service we deliver to our clients. In all seats you will have the best possible training from a dedicated supervisor who will guide you on the skills required to be a success in that field.
