Trainees at Maitland Walker are encouraged to take a reasonable level of responsibility and initiative from an early stage – all under careful supervision.
We welcome applicants who have achieved (or anticipate achieving) a 2.1 or above at degree level. As well as clear evidence of academic ability, when recruiting, we look for candidates who have shown an interest in, and commitment to, the law. Equally important in our selection criteria are good interpersonal skills, and a well-rounded personality.
