We welcome applications from students/graduates with strong academic backgrounds with a minimum of a 2:1 degree (or be on course to achieve a 2:1) as well as good A Level results (B,B,B or equivalent at A-level). Applications are welcome from both law and non-law students.

You should have strong interpersonal and communication skills coupled with a common sense approach. The ability to work within a team and using your own initiative is imperative.
