What Are We Looking For?
Needless to say, we look for bright, hardworking and committed people, possessing a good dose of common sense and the ability to think outside the box. That said, we are looking for people who can contribute to and grow with the Firm, so it is equally important that you are a team player who is motivated to take on challenges and contribute to the success of the Firm.
What to Expect
At Rahmat Lim & Partners, our Pupils are an integral part of the team and while the focus will be on your training, you will be expected to take on active roles in matters.
It is compulsory for our pupils to attend our in-house training programme under which you will be required to attend regular training sessions on all aspects of legal practice as well as undertake training assignments. Aside from this, you will also be working at all times under the supervision of a Partner. You will also work closely with the Associates in your team, who will train you in matters specific to your practice area as well as the soft skills required as a practitioner. We have a rigorous recruitment process for pupillage, as our aim is to train with a view to retain.
Of course, life is not just about work so you will have lots of opportunities to participate in non-work activities. Social events are part and parcel of life at Rahmat Lim & Partners and there are numerous events planned on a Firm, department and team basis, such as the Firm’s annual dinners, movie nights, and other CSR and social events. Our Firm also organises weekly yoga sessions, and bi-weekly futsal and badminton sessions.
We do not encourage rotation between departments. As the pupillage period is relatively short, we do not feel a fair assessment can be made of a Pupil's performance if he or she rotates between departments.
The Firm does, however, organise a comprehensive in-house training programme which gives members of the Firm insight into other practice areas within the Firm. These sessions are held bi-weekly and cover all aspects of legal practice. Pupils from all practice areas are invited to participate in such sessions, giving everyone an opportunity to learn about a practice area which he or she is not currently exposed to.
Where we are able to do so, the Firm has entertained requests for transfers to other departments. This, of course, depends on whether there is a position available in the department to which you hope to be transferred.
We do not take in a fixed number of pupils a year as it depends on a various factors such as manpower or legal talent requirements of the various practice groups.
Very high, as we recruit and train with a view to retain.
