Legal Technology Graduate Recruitment Scheme

It is an incredibly exciting time to kick start your career in the legal technology industry. Over the past decade, the demand for innovative, tech enabled legal services has developed into a broad field, offering a range of technical specialists and an exciting alternative career path in law for those who do not wish to qualify as lawyers.

Following on from the success of last year's Legal tech graduate scheme we have decided to launch our second cohort of graduates. Providing high performing graduates who are interested in developing a career in legal technology an opportunity to join the fast-paced Service Excellence team at one of the world’s leading law firms.

Non-legal graduate recruitment schemeRole Summary

This two-year scheme will be split into two parts. Within the first year, you will be embedded within the central Service Excellence Solutions team where you will be exposed to our firm-wide legal and client-facing technologies and problem-solving frameworks. This will be a mixture of training exercises and live project work to build out your fundamental skills across our core toolkit

During year two you will take part in two six-month practice group placements, creating an opportunity for you to build upon the skills gained in year one and develop your ability to analyse problems and identify feasible solutions in real time

This dual approach ensures that you get a varied, rich experience and develop a good breadth knowledge over the duration of the Scheme

Qualifications and training
