Firm description and career prospects
Boodle Hatfield is a highly successful private wealth and property law firm serving a full spectrum of commercial and private clients, both domestically and internationally from our offices in London and Oxford. The ethos of facilitating private capital activity and private businesses underpins the work of the whole firm. The interplay of the skills between five major areas – private wealth, property, corporate, litigation and family – 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.

Training contract programme
Trainees spend six months in up to four of the firm’s main areas: private client and tax, property, corporate, litigation and family. 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 ?ies personally as soon as they are able to do so, (with the appropriate supervision). The firm’s 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 stage. Trainees are assigned a supervisor in each seat and are given formal appraisals every three months which are designed as a two-way process and give trainees the chance to discuss their progress and to indicate where more can be done to help in their ongoing training and development.
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.
