Career companion resources

We carried out a number of member surveys and you told us there are two areas where you need greater support from the Law Society:

  • career development
  • resilience

We’re launching new guidance, resources and services to help.

Whether you want to join a group of peers, explore online material in your own time or seek individual support, you’ll find something to suit you.

Sign up for a workshop

Are you trying to look beyond the day-to-day demands of your role and craft a clear, compelling career plan? In the face of high workloads and demanding clients, it’s more important than ever you feel equipped to achieve your goals without your health, wellbeing or personal life suffering.

To help you do this, we’re running two sets of workshops across England and Wales in June and July 2019:

  • career development
  • resilience and wellbeing

The workshops are available in three formats:

  • face to face
  • virtual
  • a combination of face to face and virtual

Workshops cost from £100 + VAT.

Get one-to-one support

Our new Career Skills sessions in June and July 2019 offer one-to-one support. They’re open to solicitors with 0–3 years PQE. They offer individual guidance on what makes a great CV or job application, and a chance to practice interview techniques.

These sessions are available in two formats:

  • face to face in London and Birmingham
  • virtual (telephone and Skype)

A 60-minute session costs £50 + VAT. Members who are unemployed or facing unemployment can get a 30-minute session free.
