What a lovely sunny start to the bank holiday! ☀️ ⁣ ⁣ Next step in the journey is my third and most favourite seat of my training contract - my employment seat 🪑 ⁣ ⁣ When undertaking my employment seat I got to experience and work on a mixture of contentious and non-contentious matters. I also got to collaborate with other teams such as corporate, commercial, tax, pensions and regulatory as employment links with many aspects of law! 🔗⁣ ⁣ On the contentious side, typical trainee tasks include preparing bundles of documents, drafting responses to claims, preparing witness statements and correspondence to the tribunal. Since qualifying, I have also had the opportunity to conduct my own advocacy at preliminary hearing at an employment tribunal. 👩🏼 ⚖️ ⁣ ⁣ On the non-contentious side, I reviewed and marked-up policies and staff contracts to keep them in line with best practice and relevant legislation. I also regularly work on corporate transactions which involve due diligence reviews of employment documents and service agreements. There is also a number of opportunities to support with writing articles and carrying out research. I was given a good level of client contact in this seat from a very early stage.⁣📝 ⁣ This is the perfect seat if you are looking for that mix of litigious and non-litigious work whilst working with a team that will challenge and develop a wide range of skills. 💫⁣ ⁣ #solicitor #legal #ukemplaw #womeninlaw #legalcareers #associate #worklife #workethic #employmentlaw #employment #lawyersofinstagram #NQ #shoosmiths #ulaw #uon #trainingcontract #TC #LPC #LLM #LLB #lawstudent #traineesolicitor #contentious #noncontentious #dataprotection
