Local Government is facing many challenges and here at the South London Legal Partnership we have embraced this with the formation of a five Borough Shared Service providing legal services to Merton, Richmond, Kingston, Sutton and Wandsworth Councils.

We are working in an exciting innovative environment where we are providing high quality legal services to our clients. Our ethos is based on excellent client care where we have a can do attitude but remembering that each team member is an individual who counts.

We want to recruit 2 further advocates, one permanent and one for12 months fixed term within our Social Care and Education team, primarily undertaking advocacy in care proceedings. In due course there is the potential to develop skills in education tribunal work and/or Court of Protection work. We are looking for experienced advocates with higher rights of audience.
