What you'll be doing
Everything you’ll need to become the best lawyer you can possibly be
From day one you’ll be a part of a strong support structure. You’ll never be left to struggle alone with complex, case-critical work and we guarantee that you’ll never be asked to perform menial tasks with a kettle or a photocopy machine.
As far as we’re concerned, you’re an extremely valuable part of a team and you’ll be working with clients, at the sharp end, from day one. You’ll have a supervising partner to review your progress and allocate your work, a mentor to show you the ropes, and access to a dedicated trainee development team.
During your two -year training period you’ll spend six months in each of four practice areas, such as Intellectual Property, Insurance, Employment and Corporate. You’ll also take part in a formal training programme throughout your contract that will support, and complement, the practical experience you’ll gain by ‘learning on the job.’
There’ll also be opportunities to be seconded to one of our clients as an in-house lawyer, forge personal relationships with clients and develop a deep understanding of their business, helping you to become commercially aware as well as legally proficient.
You’ll be challenged, supported and stretched. You’ll work hard and make a real contribution to our business because you’ll soon see yourself as playing an important part in the future of our firm.
