Trainee recruitment


Shortlisted applicants will be invited to participate in an assessment process, including a psychometric test (Watson Glaser), written exercise and an interview, before being offered a space on the one-week summer vacation scheme.

The vacation scheme itself offers participants an unparalleled insight into life and work at Northridge. It includes hands-on work experience and various activities allowing applicants to immerse themselves fully into the firm’s way of life and ultimately feel like part of the team. There will also be a number of assessments, with successful applicants being offered a training contract starting in September 2024.

The vacation scheme is suitable for individuals with a genuine interest in sports law, which includes being alert to current trends and able to speak informatively about sports law issues.  We welcome applicants from all degree disciplines, but you must have achieved, or be expected to achieve, a 2:1 or above at degree level (or equivalent). We do, however, genuinely take into account mitigating circumstances. We do not have a minimum requirement at A Level.  The 2022 vacation scheme is aimed at penultimate-year law students, final year non-law students and graduates, however we will accept applications from those further along in their studies.

Northridge will not be running an application process outside of the vacation scheme.
