Most important are transferable skill sets particularly relevant for lawyers, including: critical thinking; attention to detail; and business acumen.
When completing the sign-up form, please select the practice areas in which you feel comfortable working with minimal support and also specify those in which you are interested, but have less experience.
There are opportunities for lawyers of all levels of experience, however if you have fewer than 2 years’ PQE, it may take a bit longer to find appropriate opportunities – unless you are paired with a more experienced lawyer.
There is no minimum time commitment required, though you are likely to get access to more interesting opportunities if you are able to commit to 5 hours a month or more. Our platform takes into account each individual’s availability when matching them to possible opportunities.
