Jobs for Apprentices in the Law

Guys – Do you have any advice for a young apprentice? I was meant to go to Blackhall Place in September; however, my firm can no longer send me! Can’t find anything! Dom.

Hi Dom. 

 

You have my fullest sympathies.  I was an apprentice many years ago (I won’t say how many) but it is very difficult in an economic downturn, particularly with the legal profession in some areas so badly hit, to find an apprenticeship. 

 

My advice is to target law firms specialising in areas not affected by the recession such as civil or criminal litigation and offer them a few months free work to give them a taste of your undoubted abilities.  My own experience is that when you take someone on and they prove themselves able, you rely more and more on their skills and are less likely to let them go.  In these circumstances they are  more likely to offer you a position.

The issues raised in the answer to this NewsTalk listener's question are dealt with in a general way as can only be the case on live radio. Before relying on the advice given in this answer, whether you heard the broadcast or are for the first time reading the issues here please do not rely on the broad advice given. For a detailed professional opinion please consult a qualified legal advisor and for further details read our disclaimer on the Home Page.
