Blacks offers training contracts to three paralegals

Leeds-based law firm Blacks Solicitors is continuing to support the development and progression of its employees by offering training contracts to three paralegals in its September 2020 intake.

This brings the current number of trainees at Blacks to six, all of whom will become fully qualified solicitors once they have completed their two-year training contracts, which will see them work with a range of teams across the firm.

Ellie Stansfield, Jack Dodd and Jenna Keough previously worked as paralegals in the family, commercial property and residential property teams, respectively.

Stansfield is also secretary for the Leeds Junior Lawyer Division and will become vice chair in December, which will see her continue to support the committee and the chair in providing educational and social events across the year.

Tom Moyes, training partner at Blacks, commented: “Jenna, Ellie and Jack all went through a challenging training contract application process and should be very proud for reaching this point in their careers. We remain fully committed to recruiting quality trainees to assist the firm’s continued growth in the marketplace, and our clients will undoubtedly benefit from their talent and commitment.”
