An exciting opportunity for a qualified solicitor, barrister or CILEX equivalent to join our busy and friendly team of legal professionals.

The work ranges from clerking school admission and exclusion appeals as part of a wider team to conducting litigation in the criminal courts and education tribunals and everything in between.  No two days will be the same.  You will have significant opportunities to conduct their own advocacy but will also work closely with various Counsel and support staff and will have the benefit of a modern cloud-based case management system allowing significant work from home and legal resources, including practical law.

There is no minimum period of post-qualified experience required for this role however some expertise of working within – or for - local government, particularly in Wales, would likely be an advantage as would experience of criminal litigation or education law.  However, training and support will be provided to the successful applicant so candidates may also be able to demonstrate transferable skills, for example broad legal experience in contentious work or other relevant areas.
