Applications are now being accepted for Ogier's 2024 trainee solicitor intake in Guernsey and Jersey.

Our highly successful Channel Islands trainee scheme provides a structured training programme, regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the equivalent of those run by City law firms, where trainees rotate through different teams over a two-year period. As a result of the recent SQE introduction, there are now more opportunities than ever to train as an England & Wales solicitor.

Ogier has been training England & Wales solicitors for more than 18 years, with former Ogier trainees at every level of the firm, from associate through to partner. Centring flexibility and finding a route that works best for the candidate's particular circumstances, our enhanced offering provides a number of pathways to qualification:

SQE route

  • Learn then earn

Candidates will study for SQE 1 and SQE 2 full time over the course of a year, and then join Ogier for a 24-month rotational work experience.

  • Earn while you learn

Candidates complete SQE 1 and 2 during their 24-month rotational work experience (individuals will need to have 12 months or more paralegal experience at Ogier or a comparable firm).

LPC route

Ogier is continuing to support the LPC route to qualification for candidates who have already completed or started the LPC route and meet the Solicitor Regulatory Authority's transitional requirements.

With more pathways available to support individuals at different stages of their career, whether you're a current paralegal considering your options or looking to progress onto the traditional training programme route, it’s a great time to join our award-winning firm.

Partner Richard Daggett, who heads up Ogier's trainee solicitor programme said: "We're very pleased to once again open the application period for our Trainee Solicitor Programme. At Ogier, we focus on providing trainees with a comprehensive foundation which will set them up for the rest of their careers. As a firm we're passionate about providing a diverse range of training and development opportunities so candidates can develop their all-round skillset alongside their technical legal skills. A proud graduate of the programme myself, I strongly recommend it to anyone looking to kickstart a successful career in law with a firm where people are put first."
