Become a full-time or part-time volunteer today.
In order to join us, please fill out the downloadable volunteer form below that consists of targeted questions that test your experience and motivations. Once we assess the form, if they meet our required standard, we will contact you to arrange an interview to see if you meet our other criteria.
Upon completing and signing the volunteer form, you agree to our terms & conditions upon onboarding.
Please send your applications to [email protected]
When the process has been completed and if you successfully pass our application and interview stage then you will be provided taken through training and all the induction materials you need.
This will include a company email to engage with our clients or networks which takes 2 weeks to process. Once this is completed, you may begin working with us straight away! You will be allocated a Mentor who will be your first point of call for any general queries and will be your supervisor for your SQE journal. When you join a case, you will have be led by a Team Leader who you will go to for any case related queries and tasks. All team leaders' contact info can be found on our senior members page.
We want to help as many people with their SQE qualification and the work we do counts as QWE. However anyone can join, you can be a first year, graduated, be non- law or doing your LPC!
As it is on a voluntary basis, there is no obligations to get on every single case. However our requirement is that when you are with us, you should aim to be on at least one case per month working a minimum of at least 4 hours per week of recorded work, not including team meetings or chat communications. If capacity allows, we encourage more hours if you can. This is an online platform so you may work from anywhere in the world! Record the QWE you do with us here to count towards your solicitor qualification:
When you join please show proof that you have registered for a journal and have added us as an organisation as this will be compulsory to fill out, especially when looking to get your QWE signed off.
