It is coming to that time of year again when the qualification treadmill ramps up and hundreds of trainee solicitors across the North are vying for a newly qualified solicitor role at their current firm. Unfortunately, in these difficult times not all law firms can guarantee their trainee solicitors a role upon qualification. That is where CapeClarke Legal Recruitment can help.
Throughout February we will publish a series of blogs aimed at trainee solicitors qualifying into private practice law firms in September 2012. The blogs will provide a discipline-by-discipline guide as to market conditions and how they will affect you this year. There will also be a blog dealing with responses to some frequently asked questions – those which, from our experience of dealing with newly qualified solicitors, have been asked year after year.
We hope that you find the blogs useful, informative and reassuring. Of course, should you wish to discuss your qualification options in more detail, please do not hesitate to contact one of our Directors:
