During your Training Contract, you will complete four seats of six months each.
In each of your four seats, you will share an office with your supervisor, which means you will always have someone to guide you in your day-to-day work. In each seat you will have a mid-seat and end-of-seat performance review to help you identify areas of strength as well as areas for development.
The mentoring and support you receive as a Weil trainee means you can progress and reach your goals sooner than most law firms. You will be allocated a Trainee Responsible Partner, who will be your go-to for mentoring and advice throughout the full two years of your training.
