Starting your Legal Career – Supervised Legal Training with us

Posted: October 25, 2023

Many of our lawyers started their careers with us by completing on-the-job training and supervision as articled clerks or trainee lawyers after completing their law degree.

To meet the requirements of the Legal Profession Uniform Admission Rules 2015 for admission to practice as a lawyer, law graduates must demonstrate that they have achieved competence in Skills, Compulsory and Optional Practice Areas and Values as set out in Schedule 2 of those Rules.

These competencies may be achieved by undertaking Supervised Workplace Training, where the law graduate is employed by a law firm as a Trainee Lawyer and works under the supervision of a suitably qualified lawyer for a 12-month period.

Following the completion of this training, the Trainee Lawyer can apply to the Board of Examiners for admission to practice.

Traineeships with RCT and Stringer Clark for law graduates: It’s often the non-legal that matters the most

We take our training and mentoring responsibilities very seriously. We recognise that legal talent has to be nurtured and supported, with ready access and counsel from within the senior ranks of the firm.

Our culture is based on respect and helping people achieve their best. It is the same ethic that imbues our client relationships. A respect for a person’s interests and how they feel. So while our Trainee Lawyers get access to some of the best legal brains and technical legal training, they also benefit from learning how to treat clients – to understand more than simply the legal issues at stake and keep in mind the client’s personal needs.

We are also there to help Trainee Lawyers deal with situations that sometimes may be challenging or stressful.

It is about creating a culture based on a fully-rounded experience and learning.
