Two Year Training Contract/QWE/Paralegal – posts available in September 2021 and September 2022
We have opportunities starting in September 2021 and September 2022 for trainee solicitors and paralegals. The contracts will generally be for two years, but there may be some flexibility depending on the needs of the firm and the candidates’ own circumstances. Successful applicants will work primarily in either of the firm’s police law, immigration detention or prison law departments, but may also be asked to offer assistance to others within the firm, including our public inquiries team.
These positions are open to applicants intending to qualify as a solicitor either by completion of the LPC or via the Solicitor’s Qualifying Exam route and to paralegals who may not be seeking to qualify as solicitors. All roles will constitute qualifying work experience for the purposes of the SQE route.
We provide excellent training in our specialist areas of practice and our trainees and paralegals benefit from working alongside some of the leading practitioners in our field. Our lawyers have the opportunity to work on important and often ground-breaking cases and we are committed to training the next generation of legal aid practitioners.
Bhatt Murphy is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all sections of society. We particularly encourage applications from BME candidates and candidates with disabilities as these groups are currently underrepresented within our firm. We are also keen to hear from candidates with lived experience of our areas of work.
Starting salary: £23,500 - £24,600 per annum
