Legal research assistants

Justitia has a long history of fostering the next generation of lawyers. As part of our Legal Research Assistants (LRA) program, we hire law students to give them valuable experience in a healthy, respectful and supportive environment.

In turn, our LRAs tackle a range of tasks including administration, practice management, social media and marketing, and client support and legal research, thus contributing to an important part of the Justitia story. In fact, the smooth running of our office is largely thanks to the efforts of our up-and-coming lawyers-to-be.

Our LRAs and former LRAs may be on the lookout for new employment opportunities. Get in touch with us if you’re looking for a talented early-stage lawyer to join your team.
