Description
MK Law Solicitors was founded 10 years ago with the aim to create a different type of criminal law firm whereby clients are treated with care, consideration and the upmost respect whilst still received expert legal advice.

MK Law Solicitors is a law firm which specialises in crime and family law. We are looking for one pupil to join our team in October 2019. We have a dedicated team of advocates made up of both Barrister and Higher Rights Advocates. During pupillage the successful candidate will observe a wide range of cases covering the whole spectrum of criminal law. During the second six months, pupils will be expected to attend both the Magistrates and Crown Courts on a daily basis.

We would encourage applications from people who have experience in criminal law however this is not essential.
