The ‘core business' of a local authority legal department is to provide corporate and operational legal advice, assistance and support to its employing authority for the benefit of the community the authority have been set up to serve.
The vast range of legal work that the local government legal section will undertake makes for a stimulating and lively workplace. Many lawyers decide to follow this path early on and do their training within a local authority legal section, going on to full careers within councils.
If you are an experienced legal professional, or at the start of your legal career we would like to hear from you about roles within the council’s legal function.
