The trainees will undertake their practical in-office training until the end of 2023, before commencing their studies at the Institute of Professional Legal Studies (IPLS) in January 2024. All three will aim to qualify as solicitors in the Autumn of 2025.

Gordon McElroy, Managing Director at MKB Law, comments: “We are pleased to announce our trainees for 2023.
