The training will cover a wide range of government legal work, from core professional areas - contract, litigation and public and administrative law - to specialist advisory work for departments and associated agencies. Trainees are assigned to different offices of the GLSS for 6 month periods. There may therefore be opportunities to work within the Office of the Solicitor to the Scottish Parliament as well as the core GLSS offices. There is also an exchange scheme under which trainees may spend six months with a private sector firm.
