Matheson launches legal tech and business services graduate programmes

Leading Irish firm Matheson has launched an innovation and legal tech graduate programme and a business services graduate programme, which it says are a first-of-their-kind in Ireland.

The former is an eighteen month programme during which time the successful graduate will work as a legal solutions assistant within Matheson’s digital services group. Participants in the programme will embark on a dedicated training scheme to gain experience across a range of areas including client solutions research; legal process optimisation; and research and development.

The business services programme, meanwhile, takes place over two years, giving graduates the opportunity to complete a number of six month rotations across teams including learning and development; HR; strategic accounts; practice area marketing; and business development. Graduates on the programme will also have an elective rotation in IT; finance; risk; pricing or facilities.

Commenting on the new graduate programmes, Michael Jackson, managing partner at Matheson said: “At Matheson our people strategy is to attract, engage and develop the best legal and business professionals and we currently recruit over 100 graduates annually across our career first programme, summer internship programme and trainee programme. Our new graduate programmes reflect our continued commitment to delivering innovative legal tech solutions and to supporting diverse graduate talent with multidisciplinary skills.”
