Work experience

Chafes Hague Lambert Solicitors recognise the need for people considering a career in law to undertake work experience. We do not provide placements unless you are studying for A-levels or higher level qualifications. Currently all our work experience placements are committed.


Training contracts

In order to ensure that we offer good quality experience with future prospects we do not have a programme of training contracts. We prefer to identify specific training opportunities and then recruit a trainee solicitor accordingly. Currently we have no such opportunities.
