Home About UsJoin Us!Traineeships

We are now recruiting for two Traineeship opportunities starting in September 2019 and look forward to receiving applications from suitably qualified individuals who would like to pursue their career in a modern innovative firm.

Applications should include a CV giving information on education, qualifications and any other relevant experience along with a covering letter (no longer than one page) explaining your reasons for seeking a traineeship at Davidson Chalmers. The closing date for applications is Monday 9th October 2017 and it is expected that a short list of candidates for interview will be selected in late October 2017. 
Interviews will be held on Wednesday 15th November and Thursday 23rd November.

As a modern, innovative firm, Davidson Chalmers offers trainee solicitors the opportunity to become involved in a wide range of commercial legal matters working directly for a Partner in a team including other qualified lawyers.

Being a people business, we also remember to take time out for social activities (with clients & each other).  And we remember that graduates are people, who like excellent pay packages.  So we offer those too. We also meet Diploma fees for successful applicants for our Traineeships.

During the two year traineeship period, a trainee can expect to gain experience in a number of the following practice areas:

  • Commercial property
  • Employment
  • Corporate
  • Dispute resolution
  • ​Environmental, Waste & Renewable Energy

Practical work will be supported by regular training sessions where trainees are involved with qualified lawyers, including Partners, allowing trainees to gain the benefit of their insight and experience.
