Part time Litigation Lawyer is required to join a local authority which is currently expanding its legal services. This local authority is based in the Midlands and you will be joining for a period of 3 months initially whilst they undergo a permanent recruitment process however there is a strong chance of extension.
You will be an experienced litigator, preferably who has worked within a public sector setting due to the nature of the work and deputising for the Senior Lawyer in their absence. You will be undertaking a caseload of mattes which include;
- Prosecutions to include Planning enforcement, environmental health, food and safety and housing enforcement
- Licensing matters such as taxis, entertainment licensing, alocohol licensing and gambling
- General civil litigation matters
The courts are local to the council and therefore advocacy is expected once the courts are allowing you to do so.
