Interested in joining as a practice trainee?
Practice trainees are rotated throughout numerous practice groups to provide trainees with maximum exposure and training in multiple disciplines of a large law firm. We consider such training to be the cornerstone of a successful legal career and this has been our practice even prior to the Board of Legal Education's new requirements that trainees be exposed to 2 or more areas of practice.
Practice trainees will be exposed to the following areas of practice:
- Civil litigation
- Corporate practice
- Conveyancing practice
Practice trainees will be assigned to supervising solicitors who are partners in the practice trainee's department of choice. Practice trainees will learn various aspects of legal work in the practice groups that they are rotated to. They will receive training in client care and file management and their research skills developed as undergraduates will be further enhanced. They will receive training on drafting of documents, participate in hearings and negotiations in order to develop advocacy and negotiation skills and they will be nurtured to improve their communication and interpersonal skills.
Practice Trainee Allowance
Our practice trainee allowance is S$2,000 per month. These amounts are reviewed and adjusted periodically. Upon completion of their training contract with us we reimburse our practice trainees for the Practice Law Course fees and court filing fees for admission papers.
We welcome hardworking, self-motivated, talented persons who are enthusiastic about learning, and have good interpersonal skills. If you look forward to a dynamic yet caring working environment, send us your Practice Training Scheme Application Form together with your photograph and supporting documents.
