Who are the TST and ILT?

At Addleshaw Goddard we are more than just exceptional lawyers. We attract smart and energetic people who are committed to our clients' success and believe in team-work and professionalism combined with a personal touch.

Business innovation offers new possibilities for how legal services are delivered. At AG, our Transaction Services Team and Innovation and Legal Technology teams exist to deliver more and better through embracing and developing new ways of working. Both teams work to deliver the needs of our clients in a changing world, and have played important roles in many of AG's largest client assignments.

We're passionate about opening up legal careers and our summer Discovery programme is aimed at graduates from any discipline, students year 13 and above or career changers looking to find out more about the legal industry.

During the four-part series, you will gain:

  • insight into the TST and ILT
  • training and guidance to develop the practical skills that would help you to flourish in our teams
  • insight into the recruitment process and how to prepare for applications and interviews for paralegal and legal technologist roles
  • insight into the roles within TST and ILT through networking sessions with our teams. You'll hear from a range of professionals who work with us about their journey and experience.

At Addleshaw Goddard, we recognise the importance of nurturing an inclusive culture to help us attract, retain and enable our people to be the best we can be. We are committed to ensuring that opportunities exist for all and actively encourage applicants for our Discovery programme from diverse backgrounds and communities, particularly those from underrepresented demographics. Please let us know if you need us to make any reasonable adjustments to enable you to participate in the programme.
