Square One Law Paralegal Open Day


Find out about working as a paralegal with Square One Law, a commercial law firm based in Newcastle upon Tyne.

To create a new legal brand in today’s competitive legal sector, Square One Law has literally gone back to square one. This is because the feedback from clients made it clear that they wanted experienced lawyers who have a real understanding of their business and market sector and not be delegated to inexperienced members of a larger team.

Our firm is completely client focused and our leaner model means we do not recruit a large number of junior lawyers. However, we do offer a couple of traineeships, previously known as training contracts, to exceptional candidates each year.

If you are interested in applying to our summer vacation scheme, the scheme will be held for 3 weeks from:

  • Monday 5 June 2017 to Friday 9 June 2017
  • Monday 12 June 2017 to Friday 16 June 2017
  • Monday 26 June to Friday 30 June 2017  

We offer a select number of candidates a week’s experience working across the firm.

The paralegal open day will be held, for a select number of candidates, on Friday 23 June 2016.

If you would like to be considered for the vacation scheme or the paralegal open day, please send a letter, your CV and answers to the 3 following questions in no more than 150 words per question:

1. Why do you want to be a lawyer in a commercial firm in the North East?
2. Why should we select you as a trainee above all the other candidates?
3. How would you go about developing your own professional network?

Applications should be sent to by no later than Friday 21 April 2017.
