Professional Development

At Coulter Legal, we provide continuous education and development opportunities for all our people. We invest in our people – everyone on our team attends external seminars, workshops and forums, and participates in regular in-house training. We encourage all of our people to share knowledge in formal training sessions and day-to-day interactions. We believe every client, every case and every conversation is a learning opportunity.

What we look for

We recruit law graduates, legal administration trainees, experienced lawyers, subject matter experts and specialised professionals. We look for culture and values, innovative thinking, the ability to build relationships and dedication to quality work.
