Riverview Law Legal Re-Train Programme Launches!

The Riverview Law Legal Re-Train Programme launched on Friday 1st June 2018. The programme continues to build on the company strategy of contributing to the development of the legal market. With a growing number of lawyers seeking to enhance their careers by moving into commercial contracts, Riverview Law sees its first 10 lawyers embarking on a 2 year training programme. The programme will take them from a wide variety of specialisms including family law, PI, litigation, industrial disease and employment, and re-train them as commercial contracts lawyers.

Riverview Law has a proud history of growing its own people with a well-established training contracts programme incorporating an SRA approved Technology seat. The development of the Riverview Law Legal Re-Train Programme continues this theme with those undertaking the programme being exposed to:

– Commercial contracts legal training;

– ‘On the job’ commercial experience in at least 2 areas of Riverview Law’s Managed Service  and/or Projects business areas; and

– The utilisation of Kim and other technologies for the legal industry.

“The Legal Re-Train Programme is an exciting opportunity for us as a business and lawyers in the industry. Having seen the high calibre candidates from other disciplines who are seeking a career in commercial contracts, we knew this was another excellent opportunity to grow our business and support the evolution of the legal market. Our kick off session was full of laughter and enthusiasm with everyone eager to get the programme up and running. We look forward to welcoming our next cohort in the very near future too!”  Sonia Williamson, Head of Managed Services & Projects, Riverview Law.
