This is a two year Trainee Solicitor post involving in house training under the supervision of both experienced advisers and qualified solicitors in areas of social welfare law including debt, employment, family, housing, immigration and welfare benefits, supplemented by short term private practice secondments. The role will particularly focus on the provision of legal education and advice for young people.

The vacancy is aimed at law graduates that have passed their LPC or BPTC and are seeking to complete their training contract or pupillage before taking up a role in social welfare law. For more information please visit the JFF website.
