If you are an energetic and flexible young lawyer with a heart for social justice, then you may well be the right person to join this team. Salvos Legal has been the first law firm in which I practiced law as an admitted solicitor. The calibre of the lawyers, and the wealth of experience they collectively bring from their  years of practice in diverse areas of the law, culminate to provide a very rich ground to sharpen legal thinking, and especially allow exposure of the untaught and often unspoken aspects of the law which are essential for young lawyers. The quality of the mentoring and guidance has been excellent, and I have been fortunate enough to have worked directly on matters with outside counsel, to go to court, and to have direct contact with clients. The experience is highly recommended for newly admitted lawyers with an interest in learning about case management, communications with external stakeholders, and developing other crucial soft skills necessary for practice.
