Trainee Solicitor Vacancies

Beltrami & Co has been synonymous with criminal law for over 60 years and remains at the forefront of criminal defence. Over the last 5 years we have also been growing our civil court department and deal with divorce, family, employment, as well as general contractual disputes. If you’re looking for a traineeship where you’ll gain on-your-feet court experience, working alongside some of the finest legal minds in Scotland, then Beltrami & Co could be the firm for you.

We are looking to expand our team by recruiting 3 new trainees. As a minimum requirement, all applicants must have completed their LLB and have undertaken their Diploma in Legal Practice (this includes those due to be awarded their Diploma in summer 2021). Applicants must have an interest in court work, which will be supported by their subject choices and/or dissertation topic. Applicants must have good attention to detail; an aptitude for legal research; the necessary drive required to work both as part of a fast-paced team and on your own initiative; the stamina needed for undertaking court work; an excellent memory; and the intellect required to gather, analyse and evaluate information from a variety of sources. Applicants must also be balanced, efficient, decisive and prudent.  

Our offices are in Glasgow city centre, but as your traineeship progresses you will be required to travel throughout Scotland. It is therefore preferable that all trainees have a full UK driving licence and their own transport.

The firm offers a supportive training environment and all trainees will be encouraged towards appearing in court at the earliest possible stages in order to gain hands-on experience in summary court procedure.

Applicants should send their CV together with a covering letter and recent headshot to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by close of business on Friday, 16th April 2021. Successful applicants will be contacted to arrange an interview thereafter.
