Training Contracts

Your supervising solicitor and your training

We understand that good mentorship and guidance are integral in equipping our trainees to face the challenges of practice.

During the course of your traineeship, you will be paired with a supervising solicitor, a partner experienced in the expectations of legal practice.  He will supervise your training and guide you through the rigours and trials of legal practice. You will also have the opportunity to work with other partners and lawyers, who will provide hands-on training and feedback. Their doors are always open if you need any support.

At MPillay, you will be part of a team of individuals who work closely together to achieve a common objective.

You will be exposed to different areas of practice and different departments including civil litigation, arbitration and corporate practice.  During your training, you will work with lawyers with different practice skills and focus so as to equip you with a well-rounded experience of what legal practice entails.

You will attend the in-house training  sessions that the firm organises periodically. These cover various aspects of legal practice, from black-letter law topics to industry knowledge, client management, people skills, et cetera.

Here is a list of our supervising solicitors.
