Out of the Office
A Training Contract with Higgs is not just the usual office based, 9 to 5 routine. We like our Trainees to get fully involved with all the activities that go on, which include firm and client events, sporting pursuits as well as the more 'informal' Trainee nights out.
We are keen to develop our Trainees' careers beyond that of purely legal skills. Trainees are encouraged to network with other solicitors and young professionals to raise their, and the firm's, profile.
We are centrally involved with the Birmingham Trainee Solicitors Society (BTSS) and have had Trainees elected onto its Committee for the past three years. Our Trainees are ever-present at the various sporting and social events that the BTSS holds, including the Annual and Summer Balls.
Higgs' Trainees are also active members of:
- The Junior Lawyers Division
- The Wolverhampton Junior Lawyers Division
- The Birmingham Young Solicitors Group
Trainees are also encouraged to take part in events as they arise, including breakfast clubs, Law Society dinners and social and sporting events with clients and contacts.
A key feature of Trainee life at Higgs is fundraising for the firm's chosen charity each year. For more information on this, click here
