Legal Assistant, Family (Personal Law)

BCR Law’s Personal Law team is looking to recruit a Legal Assistant to join its busy and growing team. 

Core responsibilities

The successful candidate will work closely with the Advocates and other fee earners in the team to assist in the full range of services we provide to our clients.  These matters range from divorce, dissolution of civil partnerships, to children issues including contact and maintenance, and working on complex, multi-jurisdictional issues arising in the context of relationship breakdowns.  The workload is varied and no two days are ever the same! 

The role will include meeting clients to take instructions and attending to follow up work, preparing documents including applications for Court, compiling bundles for Court hearings, legal research, liaising with clients and providing advice to clients about their matter.  The successful candidate will be expected to manage his or her own case load, with supervision as required.

Key skills

The successful candidate will be bright and enthusiastic, with a solid academic record and a desire to work in family law.  Good IT skills are required.  Ideally, the candidate will have a law degree or have completed a law conversion course, or be working towards the same.  Excellent command of the English language and grammar is essential.  The successful candidate needs to be well-organised, efficient and recognise the importance of adhering to deadlines.  

The candidate must have a strong work ethic, be flexible to meet the needs of the business and its clients and be committed to their legal career.  We pride ourselves on excellent client care and maintaining a good relationship with colleagues in other firms and a good reputation with the Court.

We may offer support for further studies and are committed to the professional development of our staff.
