Bevan Brittan LLP has been named among the country’s top graduate recruiters for 2017/18.

It has been included in The Guardian UK300 that lists the most popular 300 graduate employers, as voted for by more than 60,000 students from more than 120 universities.

Bevan Brittan managing partner Duncan Weir said:

“We are naturally delighted that Bevan Brittan has been recognised by students themselves in this important survey of graduate employers. We are fully committed to providing first-class training to our graduates and others who choose to start their legal careers with us.

“Our trainee solicitors receive a tailored learning and development programme that gives them early exposure to real work for real clients. And this careful management of the learning process allows confidence to grow alongside experience.”

Last year, Bevan Brittan took its largest graduate trainee and apprentice intake for seven years as the firm continues to grow across its offices in Bristol, Birmingham, Leeds and London. The firm also runs work placement and summer vacation career schemes.

Bevan Brittan has attained the Investors in People gold standard, and has also reached gold standard in The Law Society’s diversity and inclusion charter.

The news coincides with Bevan Brittan performing strongly in this year’s independent guide to the legal profession, the Legal 500.  The firm has 70 recommended individuals in the 2017 directory, up more than 60 percent from last year’s 43, while the number of ‘leading lawyers’ has doubled to eight.
