Applications open for 2018 Training Contracts

Riverview Law, the innovative legal managed services, projects and technology business, is delighted to have secured SRA approval to include a technology services seat of up to 6 months as part of its training contract programme.

This is another first for one of the leading disrupters in the legal market, which won the ‘Innovation in Technology and Data Analytics’ award at The Financial Times Innovative Lawyers Europe Awards and the ‘Most innovative client-facing technology’ at The Lawyer Business Leadership Awards last year.

Karl Chapman, CEO of Riverview Law said: “We are thrilled to be able to offer a technology services training seat as part of our Training Contract Programme. Technology is impacting every sector of the economy and legal is not immune. We are delighted that the SRA has adopted a flexible approach that enables us to educate future lawyers in how technology can assist them, our customers and the law generally.”

Since launching training scheme in 2014 13 team members have successfully completed the training contract programme. This includes those who were awarded the first 7 training contracts in 2014 and 6 from the 2015 cohort.

The training contract scheme at Riverview Law is highly prized as it includes great experience working directly for FTSE 100 customers. Riverview Law was pleased to win four categories in the Lex 100 2016/17 Trainee Survey. The Lex 100 review states ‘Trainees explain that Riverview Law is ‘different from a traditional law firm’ as ‘the culture of the business is that of an In-house environment’.’

Riverview Law has up to 10 more Training Contract places starting on 1 October 2018 and candidates are invited to apply to attend an Assessment and Development Centre on 18th October 2017.

We invest heavily in the training and development of our team to ensure that everyone is able to grow their talent and fulfil their potential within the business. Since launch we have grown rapidly and as we continue to win blue chip customers it’s key for us to continue to recruit, train and develop the Riverview Law team.”
