Trainee

I would encourage anybody who is thinking of becoming a solicitor to apply for a traineeship in LK Shields. While there is a lot of hard work involved, there is also lots of support. When selecting law firms in which to do my traineeship, LK Shields repeatedly came to the fore as possessing one of the best traineeships in the country. I'm delighted with my decision as the firm and it's programme have lived up to it's reputation. I am also pleased that the firm retains so many trainees after qualification.
