Looking for A Legal Career in Rural Practice?
- AuthorRory Hutchings
A career within the law can be a very satisfying one, particularly when you are able to work within a company that values and promotes clear career progression and has a strong commitment to ‘growing its own’ well-respected, highly professional legal experts.
JCP Solicitors is pleased to offer a new opportunity for a Trainee Solicitor, or a newly qualified Associate Solicitor, to join our specialist Rural Practice Team.
Our close-knit and supportive team is highly regarded in its field, with our professionals undertaking matters pertaining to Agricultural Law, Wills, Probate and Estates, Planning and Development, Environmental Law, Boundary and Rights of Way Disputes, and Transport Law, among other matters.
We are lucky to live and work in a part of the country for which rural life is so important and which enjoys such a rich and fascinating rural heritage, and many members of the Rural Practice Team come from rural backgrounds themselves. With some living on farms or smallholdings, they all have an interest in countryside pursuits, whether this is equestrianism or rare breed livestock. We are keen for applications from Welsh speakers as this is a desirable skill for our team.
The company approach to supporting trainees and newly qualified Solicitors is designed to help new legal professionals get the best possible grounding in legal matters, setting the foundations for a long and rewarding career.
A Trainee in our Rural Practice Team would undertake four seats on a six month rotation, in at least three distinct practice areas, and in a mixture of contentious and non-contentious areas.
A newly qualified Solicitor joining the team would gain their experience alongside Directors, Associates and a dedicated Training Principal. In fact, 15 of our one-time Trainee Solicitors have made their way up the career ladder within the JCP family and 7 are now Directors. Why not find out if you could follow a similar path?
Rory is a Director and the Head of the Rural Practice team at JCP Solicitors. Rory’s wealth of knowledge and experience in the area of land and agriculture is welcomed by his ever expanding Welsh client base. A friendly and down to earth manner, he has strong links with the NFU Cymru and is well aware of the issues facing the farming community in Wales and further afield.
JCP also offer non-qualified legal opportunities, so we would still love to hear from anyone who is interested in agriculture and finding out more about an alternative pathway to a legal career. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for an informal discussion.
