Application details and method of selection
We have opened applications in April 2017 for our training contracts commencing September 2019.
Firm description and career prospects
Mundays is one of Surrey's leading law firms, operating from modern offices in Cobham, with easy access to London and the M25. Many of our lawyers have worked in the City but have chosen to relocate to a firm where we aim to offer a service as good as (if not better than) competitors in London at more economic rates, while enabling our lawyers to achieve a better work/life balance. We offer our diverse range of clients (both corporate and private) comprehensive, responsive and commercial advice, with separate departments working closely together as appropriate.
At Mundays we have a relaxed, informal working style. Fee-earners have a willingness to share their knowledge and experience in the belief that, with hard work, our trainees of today are potentially our partners of the future.
Types of work
The firm is divided into six principal departments: commercial property, residential property and development, corporate and commercial (including employment), dispute resolution, private wealth and family. Within these departments, we have specialisms such as banking and insolvency.
Who should apply
Candidates will need to demonstrate their confidence, ability to communicate and personality. They are also required to have (or expect to receive) at least a 2.1 degree (applications from law and non-law graduates are welcome), three A levels or equivalent (odinarily AAB or better) and to demonstrate comparable performance in any postgraduate courses in law. We are looking for well-rounded individuals who are keen to develop their career with us as trainees and beyond.
Training contract programme
Trainees typically spend periods of six months in each of four departments, sharing a room with a partner or senior solicitor so that they can observe exactly how the job is done and have the opportunity to learn from day one. Trainees also have the opportunity to work for other fee earners so that they are exposed to a wide range of specialisms and working styles in their department.
So far as possible, we aim to accommodate the wishes of trainees to gain experience of any particular specialist area in which we practise. Trainees are encouraged to take on responsibility from the beginning of their training through direct experience of dealing with matters and working alongside fee-earners. Progress is closely monitored and training given to reflect the needs of individual trainees.
We are extremely pleased that Mundays wasnominated for the award of Best Trainer-Medium Regional firm at the LawCareers.Net Training and Recruitment Awards in 2016 for the fifth consecutive year. In addition, Stephen Morris (our current Training Principal) was proud to be nominated in 2014 for the award for Best Training Principal - Small Trainee Intake. These nominations were based on feedback surveys from our current trainees and over 2,300 individual assessments were gathered by LawCareers.Net across the country.
