Bursary Scheme & Training Opportunities
Viberts is committed to supporting the next generation of lawyers. We provide work experience opportunities that enable students to gain insight into the legal profession with exposure and responsibility for clients, cases and business development.
Our partners operate an open-door policy and encourage a supportive working environment across the firm.
We offer a diverse and flexible programme to selected law students during the course of their studies. This allows students to gain invaluable practical knowledge of the workings of a law firm to complement their academic studies with exposure to real work in a variety of areas helping students enhance organisational, communication and team skills.
We are one of the few Jersey law firms who are able to offer training contracts which enable trainees to qualify as English solicitors whilst living and working in Jersey.
