Law firm Berwin Leighton Paisner (BLP) has taken a novel approach to trainee induction and has sent its March joiners to military academy Sandhurst.
Fortunately for the new recruits there is precious little mud involved during the three-day programme, which is a decidedly corporate affair built around BLPs career development framework.
They didnt get any dog-tags, guns or uniforms, confirmed BLPs graduate recruitment and trainee manager Jennie Moore.
What is more the trainees were not denied too many creature comforts as they are sleeping in a nearby hotel and are only having to wake up at a very civilised 7am to 7.30am.
Instead the trainee solicitors are participating in exercises designed to enhance their leadership skills and are being schooled in client care.
We involved the military to find out how to get the best out of the youngest lawyers, explained Moore, adding that its not an army drill camp at all, Sandhurst is a phenomenal venue and facilities are second to none.
