Are you trying to break into a legal career? Do you want to build up some experience of working with a successful in-house lawyer? Are you interested in the development of legal services in the UK including ethics and compliance?
If the answer to any of these questions is “Yes”, then this role may be of interest to you. I am based in Central London and write and lecture on legal services matters for several outlets. I am also working on a new book to follow up on my highly successful last publication “Butterworths In-House Lawyers Handbook”. My consultancy work includes helping legal teams to develop their full potential.
You will have a law degree and be considering a career in the law. You will probably based in Greater London and interested in developing your knowledge of the business of law. You may be interested in a future in legal knowledge management or training.
You will write well. A background in legal research or journalism is not essential, but an interest in developing high quality legal materials is useful. A curious mind, a “can do” attitude and an ability to work to deadlines are important.
The role is part time and the hours dependent on the projects that I am working on. Unfortunately, for the time being, it is unpaid, although I will pay reasonable expenses. You will also have the chance to interact to participate in conferences and seminars including writing training. You will be able to show that you have worked with an industry thought leader.
Please write with a brief CV, an article on the legal subject of choosing within a word limit of 500 words. You should also attach a covering letter explaining what you would be able to contribute to the role. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am passionate about equal opportunities and encourage applications from those from all backgrounds.
