Junior Lawyer Development Programme

Give your lawyers the leading edge and create a tailor-made Junior Lawyer Development Programme for them.

The JLDP is designed to prepare junior lawyers for real-life challenges of the working world – addressing individual training needs and skills gaps, as identified by firms.

In response to the SRA regulation changes, the ULaw Professional Development team have designed a flexible and innovative programme to upskill your junior lawyers.


Established and sought-after provider
The University of Law is the UK’s longest-established specialist provider of legal education and is an exclusive provider to a number of leading firms.

Suitable for all junior lawyers
The JLDP is designed for all junior lawyers, including apprentices, paralegals, and trainee solicitors. Courses cover all the essential areas needed by those at the start of their legal career.

Be taught by experienced practitioners
The JLDP is designed and delivered by experienced practitioners who have close connections to practice and teach trainees, qualified lawyers and partners at major law firms.

Personalise the programme to suit your lawyers
Modules are delivered face-to-face, online or hybrid. Delegates can take a stand-alone 1.5 – 2-hour module, or combine them, to make a half-day or full day course. The JLDP is offered at our campuses across England on a published timetable or delivered in-house at a time suitable for your firm.


The well-rounded lawyer
With over 100 modules, the JLDP enhances technical law skills, core legal knowledge, business skills and personal development. Modules are taught with real-world examples and are interactive in delivery. Our team of advisors can help you design a programme to suit the needs of your junior lawyers.
