Opportunity: Graduate Programme
Closing Date: 30 November 2020
Reddie & Grose Graduate Scheme
Reddie & Grose has an excellent reputation for training; and the majority of the partners trained with the firm. Every new trainee will work closely with a partner of the firm who will be responsible for their day-to-day training and development. As a complement to this traditional one-to-one training, we have developed a bespoke training programme for our new trainees, which is intended to bring them up to speed with some of the core concepts of trade mark law, and also to provide a degree of communal practical tuition.
The training programme begins with a two-week intensive training induction introducing the basics of trade mark law as well as patent law other intellectual property laws, such as design law. The training induction also includes sessions dealing with important practical aspects of the job such as “how to communicate with clients”, “effective marketing”, and “the role of a trainee”. The training programme then continues with weekly sessions devoted to practical training. The trainees work through different tasks of increasing complexity each week, and their work is then assessed by a partner or qualified attorney. Both communal and individual feedback is provided as part of a group discussion. These practical training sessions ensure that all of our new trainees are exposed to the same core practical examples, providing them with the tools to develop their skills together.
In total, seven weeks of a new trainee’s first year at Reddie & Grose are spent working through our bespoke training programme. After this, new trainees will be supported through a 13-week course leading to the Certificate in Intellectual Property Law (currently provided by Queen Mary, University of London).
We want our trainees to have access to the best support they can get, so they are also encouraged to take advantage of courses and lectures provided by the Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys.
