Opportunities for graduates & students

Choices, choices, choices. Throughout your traineeship you will be encouraged to make choices that will define and mould your future career, but how do you make the most important decision of all?

When it comes to selecting where you’d like to undertake your training, what are the factors that matter the most to you? When describing the law firm you’d like to work for, would you choose the words ambitious, collaborative, dynamic, enterprising, friendly, supportive? Well, recent trainees at Harper Macleod did.

We pride ourselves on being open and transparent in our way of working. As a result, our Partners take a fundamental role in developing our Trainees for the future.

During your 2 year Traineeship you can also look forward to getting involved with groups, such as social, wellbeing and sustainability, as well as providing pro-bono work to charities and up-and-coming entrepreneurs, trainee and networking events, and much more!

How to apply

The application process for Traineeships commencing in 2022 will open early in 2022.

Our trainees are our potential Partners of the future and we are committed to retaining them.
