Application details and method of selection
We are proud of the diversity of our teams of lawyers, in terms of experience, background and approach. We look for diversity in our trainees too. As well as a strong academic background, excellent communication skills and analytical ability, we look for talented individuals who have a strong team ethic, ambition and who embrace responsibility. Trainees are right at the heart of the firm and nothing demonstrates this more clearly than the fact that the majority of our partners trained with us. Progression to partnership is strictly on merit and excellence is continuously rewarded.
Applications should be made via our Apply4Law portal. Unfortunately, we don’t accept email or postal applications.
Once the deadline for applications has passed, successful candidates are invited to attend our assessment day, which typically includes a number of written, group and individual exercises, along with partner interviews, to enable the opportunity for you to showcase your skills.
Firm description and career prospects
Blaser Mills Law is a leading law firm based in the South East with over 60 lawyers. We are a full-service firm, offering a comprehensive range of legal services to businesses and private individuals.
Our highly regarded firm has a strong business services offering, including corporate and commercial, employment, commercial property and dispute resolution. We also have experienced private client and family lawyers, as well as specialist lawyers in personal injury, child care, residential property and criminal defence.
We offer a fresh approach to law, with a focus on not only building relationships with clients, but also building employee relationships. The success of our business, and the high-quality service we provide for our clients comes from nurturing the skills and promoting the talent and diversity of our staff.
Training contract programme
From the moment that our future trainees receive their official offer, they become a valued member of the team. The firm organises a number of events throughout the two-year gap to give them an opportunity to get to know the firm before they officially start their training contract.
Training starts in September with a full induction day. Trainees will have varied (four six-month) seats in both non-contentious and contentious practice areas, giving them the opportunity to gain experience across a broad range of legal disciplines in a variety of locations. From day one, trainees are given plenty of responsibility and hands-on experience, with the ongoing support from experienced training supervisors. In addition, we operate a mentor scheme that gives trainees confidential access to recently qualified lawyers who can offer first-hand experience and advice. Part of the mentor scheme includes getting the trainees together three times a year for social events.
Throughout the training contract, trainees will develop their technical skills, department knowledge and client care. Business development is a further skill that we look to develop in our trainees, so when it comes to qualifying, they are confident to approach prospective clients and build their own client list. Trainees will have access to multiple business development opportunities, whether that be through article writing, presenting at seminars or attending networking events.
