Your careerwith SSLC
Our greatest assets are the quality and dedication of our people.
Each member of our law corporation is treated as a stakeholder. We are committed to providing our lawyers and staff with the requisite training, guidance and exposure necessary for each of them to develop to their fullest potential. Our people work together as friends and professionals in an atmosphere that is informal yet professional and intellectually stimulating.
We are always on the look-out for people who are responsible team players, and who are up for the challenge of thinking beyond the obvious and dealing with the unexpected.
PRACTICE TRAINING CONTRACT
The creativity of our people is what makes SSLC a forerunner in the legal industry. We aspire to innovate. One way of achieving that is with a regular injection of new energy into the firm.
We aim to offer Practice Training Contracts on an annual basis to graduates with initiative, commitment and drive. Applicants will possess an excellent academic record and a flair for problem solving but most importantly, an ability to think tangentially. We tend to take on trainees who demonstrate that they can think outside of the box and run with their instincts. At Samuel Seow Law Corporation, we favour confidence, pragmatism and a sense of independence. Good people skills are a must as trainees will be exposed to our clients from day one. A keen interest in the fine arts, film, television, dance and/or theatre is a bonus.
Our Practice Training Contract program is designed haute–couture so that every trainee may benefit from as broad or specialised an experience as he or she feels is appropriate. We give our trainees the option to rotate between departments, where they will undertake seats in the Litigation & Dispute Resolution, Corporate, and Intellectual Property Practice Groups respectively, being exposed to all Areas of Practice. While we actively encourage experience in a breadth of areas, we will not impose this system on a trainee who leans towards one particular practice group from the outset.
One of our Directors will undertake the role of Pupil Master, monitoring trainees ‘ progress throughout their Practice Training Period. Each trainee is officially assessed tri–monthly by way of an appraisal. In–house lectures are conducted to clarify updates in the law by Associates who are always standing by to offer further support throughout the Practice Training period.
Unlike many other firms, we only choose trainees who we believe to be right for the firm long–term. Our selection process is, therefore, rigorous. Typically, we receive a very high volume of applications from accomplished and impressive candidates, a number of whom will be invited to interview whereupon we will make our final selection.
