We are a Lanarkshire law firm with offices in Airdrie and Motherwell. We are currently looking to recruit a new trainee solicitor to commence work ideally in mid-January 2018, but the start date may be variable depending on the availability of the successful candidate and we will consider applications from those in the process of completing the Diploma in Legal Practice. The position will involve dealing with a range of work with the focus being on family law as well as reparation, wills, guardianship and powers of attorney. There will be a mix of private clients and legal aid work. You may be asked to work in Airdrie or Motherwell as required.
The successful applicant will be down to earth and able to form strong relationships with colleagues and clients. It is important that you are able to work well within a team but you should also be able to assume responsibility when required. Experience in, or commitment to, family law will be an advantage but not be essential. You should be enthusiastic and have a willingness to learn. An ability to demonstrate commercial awareness and to help develop the business positively will be an advantage. You will also have graduated with an LLB degree and have completed, or be in the course of completing, the Diploma in Legal Practice.
If you wish to be considered for the position then please contact our Mark McGraw by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with your CV and covering letter. You should also submit a suggested blog post for our website. This should consist of no more than 500 words on a topic related to any of the following areas of law: Compensation, Family Law, Wills, Powers of Attorney, Guardianship, Civil Court generally or Legal Aid. Your Blog post should be of relevance to the suggested area of law and should demonstrate an awareness of current developments in that area or draw attention to something you consider to be of particular significance to that area of law. We may publish a small selection of the blog posts received and by submitting your entry you accept that we may post your entry on our website. Unless you request otherwise we will credit you as the author of any Blog Post we do publish.
All applications should be submitted no later than 3rd November 2017.View all →
