Training with GoodLaw Solicitors LLP

GoodLaw Solicitors LLP is a growing law firm with four offices in the South East. We want to encourage our lawyers to be the best that they can be and to grow our firm together, learning from each other as much as we can. We are looking for talented and enthusiastic prospective lawyers from all backgrounds to help us achieve this. GoodLaw Solicitors LLP accepts applications for Training Contracts (‘Period of Recognised Training’), Legal Executive and Licenced Conveyancer routes to training in the law.

Trainee solicitors – application process

We are happy to receive applications from potential trainees who studied and successfully passed the LPC or the SQE.  At GoodLaw Solicitors LLP we cover a very wide range of legal practice, including contentious and non-contentious work. You will benefit from working with some of the best lawyers in the South East and you will be exposed to interesting and engaging work from the beginning of your training with us. You will be given responsibility to manage your own caseload under the supervision of our training team and lawyers.

We welcome applications from all graduates and undergraduates, not just those who have studied law.

Our training programme is managed by James King and Maxine Murray.

Applications for a Trainee Solicitor to undertake a period of recognised training are now closed.

Please check back in early 2025 for details of the September 2025 application process.

The process for applications for periods of recognised training is as follows:

  • Please send an up-to-date CV and a covering letter to Maxine Murray either by post to GoodLaw Solicitors LLP, 4 Isetta Square, 35 New England Street, Brighton, East Sussex, BN1 4GQ or by email to [email protected].
  • Successful applicants will have a first interview, which will involve a presentation on a specific topic, or a case analysis, followed by a general interview.
  • After all the first interviews have taken place, we will offer the final applicants a second interview, which will involve a drafting exercise.
  • We may invite applicants who have been invited to a second interview to complete a one week work experience assessment, but this will be decided on a case-by-case basis.

We require you to have finished the LPC or SQE before you commence a period of recognised training with GoodLaw Solicitors LLP. Trainees will be asked on preference for seats but will need to be flexible in terms of the needs of the firm and which office they will work in. We have offices in Brighton, Hove, Hassocks and Farnham.

Finally, we can offer time to count (a reduction in the time spent training) and this will be decided on a case-by-case basis. We will only consider qualifying work experience undertaken at GoodLaw Solicitors LLP.

The Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx) and Council of Licenced Conveyancers offer alternative routes to qualifying as a lawyer. More information can be found at www.cilex.org.uk and www.clc-uk.org.
