Aspiring lawyers are the future life blood and leaders of your firm. Attracting top talent is vital to your firm's performance, profitability and ultimately its success.
For the new generation of lawyers remuneration is not their only priority. They want to join a firm that offers a healthy workplace culture, invests in their personal development and is committed to supporting the mental health and wellbeing of their talent.

42% said that senior leaders do not care about the mental health of trainees
68% said they wouldn’t feel comfortable discussing mental health with graduate recruitment at their firm
Running a bespoke mental health and resilience webinar during a vacation scheme gives your firm a platform to showcase its culture, show you value your lawyers and care about their overall wellbeing.
This is a group who often report feeling overwhelmed about their future legal career with many facing anxiety over their GDL/LPC results meeting their conditional training contract offers and 84% having concerns over their ability to manage the stress of their training contract.
The benefits of supporting this group are twofold. Firstly, new joiners will develop an informal peer-to-peer support network; promoting a more positive mental health culture. Secondly, supporting future joiners early on in their career helps them foster the essential skills required to achieve sustainable high performance in the legal sector, helping to prevent burnout and high 1-3 year PQE drop-off.
