Whether you are presently living in the region, or are considering a relocation to Cumbria, you are invited to get in touch. On offer are the benefits of a first-class living environment, and high-quality legal work within an expanding, modern practice.

Training For A Legal Career

Awarded Lex 100 winner status in three categories for 2018, we have vacancies for the first time in three years.

There are a number of different routes by which you can qualify as a Solicitor following the introduction of the new SQE (Solicitor’s Qualifying Exam). Trainee solicitors and Solicitor Apprentices at Cartmell Shepherd benefit from a varied and structured training programme which encompasses all the specialisations of a major regional practice.

Solicitor Apprenticeship

The attraction of an Apprenticeship is that it allows you to study and learn at the same time. You will spend four days a week working alongside qualified and experienced professionals and one day a week studying. We offer a competitive staring salary of £18,000 as well as many other staff benefits. Your salary will increase as you gain more experience and all your training is paid for by the firm.

The 6 year Programme consists of modules that are studied and assessed over the duration of the course. They focus on the foundational principles of law and develop your professional skills. You will also develop knowledge of different areas of legal practice and professional skills. The final assessment of our Solicitor Apprenticeship Programme is the new Solicitors Qualifying Exam which all aspiring solicitors will have to pass (replacing the old Legal Practice Course).

Applications are open now. Please apply in writing with a CV to Scott Garson. Please include in your application why you want to train with Cartmell Shepherd and what you can bring to the firm.
