Slaughter and May increases trainee pay.... again

For the second time this year, legal powerhouse Slaughter and May has bumped up the salary packet for its trainee solicitors.

The increase of 2% and 4% for first-year and second-year trainees respectively, comes eight months after the initial salary rise in January 2018. Year-one trainees will now receive £45,000 as opposed to £44,000, and second-year recruits will benefit from a £2,000 boost and be remunerated with £51,000. The increase in salary will take effect from 1 October 2018. The move puts Slaughter and May in line with some of its Magic Circle counterparts who similarly upped their trainee salary this year.
