Training contracts

We recruit two trainee solicitors each year. We have already appointed our trainee solicitors for 2018 and 2019.

We will be advertising for two further trainee solicitors in about March or April 2019 to start in September 2020. We will expect those awarded a training contract to have successfully completed the LPC before the start date. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide any funding for the LPC.

Work experience

nplaw is keen to support aspiring lawyers and is happy to offer unpaid work experience placements to undergraduate students.

We are delighted that we have close links with UEA Law School and, in conjunction with them, we offer a number of one-week unpaid internships each summer. These are administered by the Law School and will be advertised in the spring.

We reserve a small number of placements for students who don’t study at UEA but who previously lived or went to school in Norfolk. Please contact Fiona Anthony at Fiona.anthony@norfolk.gov.uk for more details, including your CV and a brief explanation of why you are interested in a placement at nplaw.
