At MW Solicitors we are serious about how we train our Paralegals and Trainees and we are rightly proud of our Training and Development Programme which is crucial to MW's promise to make the best advocates available to clients not just now but for years to come.

What is the Advocacy Competition?

Put simply the MW Advocacy Competition is an annual event which pits Paralegals and Trainees against each other in mock court room trials.  Our junior legal staff gain practical experience and learn vital skills for their future as MW Solicitors.  During the course of several hotly contested rounds they examine their briefs in close detail, construct their arguments and present their case as either the counsel for the defence or prosecution in front of real judges.

Unique Among Law Firms

The Advocacy Competion is a unique feature of the MW Training and Development Programme which attracts prospective candidates to MW from Universities and Law Schools all over the country.  We have made a video to give  a taste of what it is like to compete as an MW advocate and what a career as an MW Paralegal or Trainee might entail.
