Trainee Litigation Programme

Gaining experience of the litigation process is an essential part of a legal training contract. This course is designed to offer Trainee Solicitors first-hand experience of the litigation process and overcome any difficulties faced in satisfying the contentious element of the training contract.  

TheTrainee Litigation Programme will expose learners, through a variety of activities, to all the contentious practice skills standards stipulated by the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority (SRA) as being a requirement of the period of recognised training.


The Trainee Litigation Programme is available to all trainee solicitors, people looking for further advocacy tuition and it’s also suitable if you’re seeking litigation experience for in-house legal departments.

It is a comprehensive programme, and you will be expected to have the foundation knowledge of litigation that’s taught on the LPC and the Advocacy and Communication Skills module of the PSC. The programme is incredibly valuable because trainees get an equivalent experience to what they would gain during a contentious seat but over a much shorter time
