Application Process

Information about Lewis Silkin's trainee application process.

Trainee Applications - Eligibility

We are interested to hear from you if you are a second year law student, final year non-law student, a graduate or someone looking to change career. You will also need excellent academics; our usual requirement is a minimum grade of AAB at A-level (or equivalent) and ideally you should be expecting/have achieved a 2:1 or first class honours degree.

To secure a training contract with us you will need to demonstrate commercial awareness, people skills and career focus. We aim to develop our trainees into the future leaders of the firm so cultural fit is key.

We focus on finding the right individual, someone who possesses all the skills and attributes of our existing top talent. When reviewing applications we give as much focus to your extra-curricular activities as we do to your academics. We don’t have an automated filtering process, we review every single application in great detail.
