Training with Mundays
Mundays has for many years prided itself in offering comprehensive, hands-on training to quality applicants who aspire to develop into the solicitors and partners of the future. We regard it as being in our trainees’ interests just as much as ours to ensure that, in the course of their training contract, they are given the opportunity to take on as much responsibility as they merit.
As a result we are extremely pleased that Mundays has been nominated for the award of Best Trainer-Medium Regional firm at the LawCareers.Net Training and Recruitment Awards in each of 2012, 2013 and 2014. In addition our Training Principal, Stephen Morris was proud to be nominated in 2014 for the award for Best Training Principal - Small Trainee Intake. These nominations were based on feedback surveys from our current trainees; over 2,300 individual assessments were gathered by LawCareers.Net across the country. LawCareers.Net are the market leading online resource for future lawyers in association with The Law Society. This nomination acknowledges the high quality of the training on which we pride ourselves.
Trainees generally spend four periods of six months each, sharing a room with a partner or senior solicitor so that they can observe exactly how the job is done and have the opportunity to learn from day one. Trainees also have the opportunity to work for other fee earners so that they are exposed to a wide range of specialisms and working styles in their department.
Trainees’ performance and progress is monitored through their training contract, with regular feedback sessions and more formal appraisals, giving both us and the trainees the opportunity to address any matters of concern and assist in the building of the trainees’ careers towards qualification and beyond.
