What you'll be doing
We'll provide you with exciting opportunities to work on deals with international clients and you will also complete your studies at the same time.
On the academic side you will gain lots of useful knowledge which you’ll be able to use in your everyday work. BPP Law School will teach the course through a combination of online and face-to-face learning and you’ll have one day a week to dedicate entirely to your studies.
You’ll be part of a team of partners, associates, trainees and paralegals; you can expect to be helping our lawyers with a variety of tasks. You could find yourself working on anything from a high-profile, £multi-million financial litigation case to a ground-breaking M&A deal. You could also spend time on secondment at a client’s office, absorbing a totally different business culture first-hand. We would also encourage you to take up one of our international secondment opportunities for our apprentices in our offices in Dubai, Hong Kong, Paris, Singapore and Seoul – it's an incredible chance to expand your horizons, experience new cultures and explore our global network.
It will be a challenge but we’ll provide you with lots of support with a dedicated supervisor and buddy/mentor and lots of opportunities for training and development.
Duties may vary considerably according to the specialist area that the role is based within. However, tasks may involve: carrying out factual and legal research; assisting with the opening, progress and closing of files; reviewing documents; drafting forms and other legal documents; or handling confidential information.
Ours is not a one-size-fits-all approach. Regular development reviews, both formal and informal, will identify your strengths, pinpoint areas for improvement and give you the chance to discuss your career objectives. At every stage, your supervisor will manage and guide your development. Ultimately, our people are our firm, so investing in your professional development is a priority. The better you perform, the better we will too.
