Digby Brown trainees are an integral part of each team, working on their own case load, managing their own clients and are training to become real experts in their field.
We pride ourselves on organising regular in house training courses on a wide range of legal subjects, as well as topics such as finance and personal development.
On average, our trainees receive an impressive average of 60 hours of Trainee Continued Professional Development hours per year- more than double the minimum required under the Law Society's PEAT 2 training requirements.
Digby Brown is one of the top 300 graduate employers in the UK, and Investors in People awarded the firm with Platinum level accreditation.
"I have thoroughly enjoyed every moment of my traineeship so far. From day one, I have had my own clients and my own responsibilities within the firm. Because of this, you very quickly get the satisfaction of helping people whose lives has been affected through no fault of their own and this is a lovely feeling to have.
"It's a really friendly environment to work in and everyone makes you feel welcome. There has never been a time I felt I couldn’t ask a question and there is always a helping hand if needed. When you start at Digby Brown, you feel like part of the team rather than just a trainee and you have the chance to really improve your skills here."
"My traineeship at Digby Brown has been an incredibly rewarding experience. From the very beginning, I was allocated my own cases to progress. Although this might seem daunting, it is a fantastic opportunity to help people whose lives have been affected by an accident whilst developing a variety of different skills.
"Throughout my traineeship, I have been provided with support and guidance from both my supervisors and colleagues which has helped me learn more and gain confidence in my abilities. I would highly recommend the traineeship at Digby Brown to anyone who has an interest in helping others through negotiation and litigation."
“My work as a trainee is varied, interesting and over time my cases have become more complex. We are encouraged to use our initiative and resolve problems when they arise but support is never far away.
“As soon as I was in possession of a restricted practicing certificate, I was able to start appearing in court. This meant I was able to see a case through from start to finish which was invaluable and very rewarding.
“As a specialist firm, a traineeship at Digby Brown is not just short tasters of life as a solicitor in different departments. Trainees are given a solid understanding or personal injury law, litigation and practice which ensures you are ready to hit the ground running as an experienced fully qualified solicitor when the two years come to an end.”
