START is available for people aged 19+ and the only other pre-requisite is a desire to venture in to this exciting and rewarding field. So, whether you’re a budding law graduate looking for your first role, or if you’re leaving school or college with an interest in this sector, START is an opportunity to fast-track yourself into the world of Conveyancing and there are six places available on each intake of this brand new course.

About the Course

Each course will run for eight weeks, compared to the standard 12 weeks for a something of this ilk, allowing you to fast-track your learning and development into conveyancing law, involving client management and working on live cases from our Wakefield office.

The course is available to anyone with an entry level law qualification, or school & college leavers without formal qualifications but pursuing a career in real estate. It will include fully structured personal development plans and one-to-one support from your manager.

As part of our 70+ strong Real Estate team you’ll have the chance to learn and grow alongside some of the industry’s leading practitioners. One day you could be helping first time buyers make the biggest move of their lives, and the next you could be managing legal compliance on large property portfolios. It’s a sector that’s ever evolving, with lots of opportunity for development and your chance to help Chadwick Lawrence stay ahead of the competition.

“This aim of the academy is to attract new trainees who may otherwise not have the chance to move into a real estate role, because many firms are focused on recruiting experienced staff. Having an existing legal qualification has been a barrier to entry for too long. And can hinder business progression. We went to change that and welcome law grads, college leavers and school leavers with and without legal qualifications and help them become great conveyancers.”

Amanda Ambler, Operational Project Manager
