    We offer a new way for firms and in-house legal teams to source their trainee solicitor needs.

    Accutrainee is an authorised training establishment and we employ trainee solicitors under an SRA approved training contract. We are responsible for our trainees and for ensuring all SRA requirements are met at all times.

    Our trainees are sent on secondments to law firms and in house legal departments in accordance with their specific requirements and needs. We will only employ a trainee once we know they can complete their training contract in a timely manner.

    The quality of trainees is of the utmost importance, with our trainees completing their training contracts to qualify as highly competent, well rounded solicitors.

    A Day In The Life

    Kyrstin, Trainee Solicitor, on secondment with a US law firm

    8.30am – Arrive at the office, turn on my computer, then go make myself a cup of tea. My office is in Tower 42 in the City, so I have a great view over London.

    8.40am – Go online and catch up on industry news while eating my breakfast. Reading the comments section on legal websites is strangely addictive!

    9.00am – Check my emails and update my to-do list for the day. I can’t function without Outlook reminders and my trusty notepad!

    9.30am – Proof read a facility agreement for one of the associates in my team.

    11.00am – Meet with one of the partners to discuss a new research task. The partners are always jetting off to give talks at various conferences around the world. I help them prepare for these events by researching material for their speeches. Alas, I don’t get to travel to Africa, Asia or the Middle East as well...yet.

    11.30am – Email my Training Principal at Accutrainee to arrange our next monthly meeting. I then logon to Online Mentor and make sure my training portfolio is up-to-date so he can see what I have been up to since our last meeting. The portfolio is also a helpful tool for reflecting on how much I have learnt each week.

    12.30 – Have lunch with the associates in one of the spare boardrooms. It’s a small team so we all have lunch together most days. Burrito Friday is a particular highlight (though not when it’s my turn to do the burrito run).

    1.00pm – I sit in on a conference call with Spanish counsel to take notes. As my current seat is in the Trade Finance department, all of our matters involve foreign jurisdictions. It’s always interesting to learn about legal processes in other countries and work with other lawyers from all over the world.

    1.30pm – Draft a set of fee letters and a legal opinion. Multi-tasking and organisation are usually the key skills I exercise as a trainee (particularly when assisting on large transactions) so it is nice to slow down sometimes and just focus on drafting one document at a time.

    3.30pm – I start putting together the weekly newsletter which I circulate to the team every Friday. I collect a variety of information throughout the week including: news items relating to clients, recent case law, amendments to relevant legislation and general industry news.

    4.30pm – One of the partners asks me to prepare some fee quotes for potential new instructions. When I put a quote together I need to think about what the client has requested, whether anything else will be required to perform the work (such as registering security), what our and/or foreign counsel’s scope of work will include and how our fees will be calculated.

    5.30pm – Make sure my entire time recording is completed for the day. It really pays to keep on top of this task daily.

    5.45pm – Speak with one of the associates about some precedents which need to be added to the precedent bank. It will be interesting to draft documents which I haven’t dealt with before. This isn’t urgent, so I put this task on my list for tomorrow.

    6.00pm – Check if anyone in the team needs assistance before heading out to a networking event in the crypt at St Paul’s. You never know where these events will take you!
