Firm description and career prospects
Boodle Hatfield is a highly successful medium-sized firm serving property, corporate and private clients. The ethos of facilitating private capital activity and private businesses underpins the work of the whole firm. The interplay of the skills between four major areas - private client and tax, property, corporate and litigation - makes Boodle Hatfield particularly well placed to serve these individuals and businesses.
LPC and GDL fees are paid for as well maintenance grants.
Boodle Hatfield offers a two-week placement in the summer, for which we accept six students each year.
The deadline to apply for the 2017 vacation scheme has now passed. Applications for the 2018 vacation scheme should be submitted via the application form on the website at www.boodlehatfield.com from November 2017.
Boodle Hatfield also runs a graduate open day. To apply for this, please follow the same instructions as laid out for the vacation scheme.
Training contract programme
Trainees spend six months in four of the firm's main areas: property, corporate, private client and tax, and litigation. Boodle Hatfield is well known for the high quality of its training. All trainees are involved in client work from the start and are encouraged to handle their own files personally as soon as they are able to do so, with the appropriate supervision. Our trainees therefore have a greater degree of client contact than in many firms with the result that they should be able to take on more responsibility at an early age. The qualities the firm looks for in their trainees are commitment, flexibility and the ability to work as part of a team. Students with 2.1 or above and a minimum of AAB at A level should apply.
