At ALG we offer four programmes, all of which give you the opportunity to experience life in a corporate law firm - whether you’re curious to know if a career in corporate law is for you or you’ve made your mind up that it is!

Trainee & Intern Programmes

Our LawStart, Student Placement and Summer Intern Programmes help us to identify candidates for our Trainee Solicitor Programme and give undergraduates a realistic job preview before accepting a position on our Trainee Solicitor Programme.

We see our trainee solicitors as key future members and leaders of the firm but also as valuable and much relied upon support for our legal teams during the trainee solicitor, summer intern or work placement period. Our trainee solicitors, summer interns and placement students assist us in successfully delivering for our clients, time and time again. For more information on all our programmes please visit
