Graduate opportunities

What do you want from your legal career?

Some law firms try to mould their trainees into what they think a good lawyer should be. At Mills & Reeve we take a different approach by giving you the opportunity to find out who you are.

We believe that the enthusiasm and ambition you have at the start of your working life should be nurtured through an environment in which you can flourish.

You’ll be given responsibility early so you can find out which areas interest you the most and what you’re really good at. At the same time, you’ll enjoy the support of everyone around you.

As the future of our firm, we’ll encourage you to think independently and come up with better ways of doing things. As an individual we’ll encourage you to get involved with the community and the active social life in our offices.

The actual training you receive will be second to none and you’ll find yourself working closely with some of the UK’s leading lawyers. Our trainees are currently sitting in the following teams: agriculture and estates, banking and finance, commercial disputes, construction, corporate, corporate tax, education, employment, family and matrimonial, insurance, planning and environment, private tax, probate and trust administration, projects, public law, real estate, real estate disputes, regulatory defence and technology.

Have a look at our graduate brochure for a lot more detailed information on what you can expect from life at Mills & Reeve.
