15th October 2020, 4:57 pm

Specialist legal recruitment consultancy Realm Recruit is launching an exclusive online service aimed at law graduates and junior lawyers. will provide job seekers with guidance and information on topics ranging from personal branding, CVs, interviews, and career progression. It will also provide tips on how junior lawyers can take care of their mental health and wellbeing at work. is the brainchild of Realm’s director and law graduate Duane Cormell, who, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic wanted to make it easier for graduates and paralegals to navigate the competitive jobs market.

It is hoped that the subscription-based service will help those at the beginning of their legal career to better understand the kinds of opportunities on offer and the various paths their career might take. There will be an emphasis on non-commercial legal practice areas commonly ignored by law school careers advisors such as private client, personal injury and family as well as information about alternative routes to legal qualification such as CILEX.

Duane will be delivering live and pre-recorded webinars, blogs and other online content through the Legal Job Coach website. He comments:

“As a law graduate myself, who was disillusioned by traditional legal career advice focusing on international or magic circle law firms, I want to tell the other side of the story. I set up to help graduates and junior lawyers understand the vast range of opportunities that are available to them within non-commercial practice areas and other types of law firms. will provide an insight into what’s it’s like to work at specialist boutiques, high street practices and both regional and national firms, and help aspiring lawyers take the steps they need to secure a rewarding role and a fulfilling career.” is launching on Friday 23rd October. To learn more and to sign-up, visit
