A&L Goodbody is internationally recognised as one of Ireland's largest and most successful law firms, with an extensive and top class client list, representing household names and international blue chip corporations. We offer breadth and depth of experience across every facet of business law, providing the full range of specialist services across the island of Ireland. We also have an international outlook, with offices in Dublin, Belfast, London, New York, San Francisco and Palo Alto. Our firm boasts a superb working environment, which reflects an atmosphere of achievement and excellence. First class information technology, knowledge systems, a knowledge centre and the ALG School of Business & Law allow you to thrive within our firm.
We are currently expanding our headquarters due to continued growth within the firm. The firm has decided to increase its annual trainee intake by 10% and will hire 150 trainees over the next three years.
Due to this continued growth we have additional traineeship opportunities available and we are currently recruiting for our September 2022 Trainee Solicitor Programme.
As a Trainee Solicitor, you'll have the opportunity to discover which areas of law interest and engage you most. Some people are born litigators, others love the dynamics of a commercial deal and some absorb themselves in employment law, taxation and restructuring. Our Trainee Solicitor Programme is designed to encourage and develop every person's unique qualities.
All of our Trainee Solicitors work within our main departments: Corporate and M&A, Litigation & Dispute Resolution, Finance and Commercial Property
To be eligible for this programme we require you to have completed all of your FE1 exams. Although a primary degree is also a pre-requisite, we are looking for candidates from all disciplines. Whether you have studied law as an undergraduate or not, if you are interested in a career in corporate law we want to hear from you. We are looking for candidates who have the drive to succeed as top class lawyers and become future leaders of our firm.
We look for evidence of the following attributes:
- Intellectual Ability, Judgement & Commercial Awareness
- Ability to Build Relationships
- Commitment to Career Choice
- Motivation and Initiative
- Effective Communication
