Mentoring for Law Firms and Junior Solicitors

business people talking

It takes a degree, the LPC and a 2 year training contract before a solicitor can practice.

It also costs around 125% of their salary to replace them.

Our THRIVE mentoring programmes give young lawyers the key professionals skills to add to their law knowledge and improves retention.

What we know

Junior lawyers tell us that the gap between the LPC and becoming a solicitor is bigger than just the practical knowledge of the law.

The skills needed to fully engage in their training contract and progress as a junior lawyer include personal effectiveness skills, practical knowledge of working in a professional environment and confidence.

Without these, the stress levels rise and burn-out or walking out are both very real options.
