Our program has been designed to encourage and challenge you. Our Legal Support Managers will be there every step of the way to oversee the program. This ensures you are getting the help you need and that you achieve success. They will also provide feedback at the end of each rotation so that you can continue to grow and develop.
You will be assigned a coach for the duration of the program. Your coach will share their experience, knowledge and provide great advice to encourage and challenge you.
