Junior lawyers

Watch sessions from the JLD forum: supporting you through qualification and beyond

The Junior Lawyers Division (JLD) held a free virtual skills event on 12 September 2020, aimed at trainees, solicitor apprentices, newly qualified solicitors (NQs) and solicitors up to five years’ PQE.

It aimed to equip those who are at the start of their careers with the skills and advice they need to progress, diversify and develop within the legal profession.
