Miles & Partners are looking for Legal Assistants
We are looking for a bright law graduate with a professional outlook to join our team of Legal Assistants providing paralegal support to a senior member of our public law family team.
The roles start in July 2021 and will suit BPTC/ LPC graduates or similar looking for good quality professional experience while preparing to apply for training contracts or pupillages. Experience of working in a busy legal environment with legal aid and CCMS will be an advantage but is not essential.
We are currently working from home (while looking forward to a return to the office in the summer), so you need to be self-motivated, comfortable with working remotely and possess a willingness and ability to work independently while maintaining professional standards.
The successful applicant will also have:
- a positive outlook;
- good communication skills;
- numeracy and IT skills;
- a willingness to learn and accept responsibility;
- commitment; and
- the ability to work well in a team.
The post on offer has a wide range of duties ranging from some clerical work, such as liaising with the Legal Aid Agency, the courts, experts, and counsel. It will also involve attending interviews with experts to take notes, assisting in arrangements for conferences, preparation of court bundles and accompanying documentation, preparation of documents for Counsel and occasionally attending Court with Counsel.
With appropriate experience and training we would expect you to progress to preparing statements and applications, attending clients and taking instructions, and conducting legal research. The successful candidate will be offered a minimum engagement of twelve months.
Salary £21,500 pa.
Please send your C.V. and a covering letter to Phil Walsh at firstname.lastname@example.org by 8 July 2021.
