Law firms invest a huge amount in trainee solicitors to support their route to qualification, however a firm's obligation to train and develop its lawyers continues beyond admission to maintain competence appropriate to their practice area and level of responsibility.

Much of this takes place 'on-the-job' through the effective delegation and supervision of client work by those lawyers with greater experience. The aim is to develop well-rounded advisers with strong commercial awareness and a commitment to exceeding client expectations - the partners of the future.

This one-day in-person workshop provides an overview of the key issues and practical skills to enable you to manage, mentor and develop junior lawyers successfully. It will include discussion of the remote and hybrid supervision environment.

The workshop is suitable for both first-time supervisors (senior solicitors and partners) and those with existing experience who are keen to gain fresh ideas. It will also be of interest to training principals with on-going development responsibilities and HR and Learning and Development specialists who may be considering internal skills programmes.

The workshop will be interactive, with opportunities for group work, discussion, individual reflection and role play.
