Bryher is a recent LLB Law Graduate from the University of Bristol. She is starting her at F-LEX with the ambition to secure a training contract in the future.

In July Megan graduated with a degree in law from the University of Bristol. She is currently applying for vac schemes and training contracts in pursuit of a career as a commercial solicitor.


F-LEX are hiring in Manchester!

The CDS is a program for future lawyers, with or without a training contract, who are looking to hone their commercial skills before they start their legal careers. As an Associate, you will receive unparalleled commercial exposure to all aspects of a successful Legal Tech Start Up. You’ll be supporting our growth across the UK and shaping the future direction of the company, whilst gaining fantastic practical experience to build your CV and prepare you for a future career in law.

The F-LEX Book Club

This month’s recommendation comes from our very own CEO Mary Bonsor. This November she is recommending that you read “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen R. Covey.

It is a book that Mary found extremely useful when starting F-LEX and she believes the lessons she learnt from the book could be applicable to many of you.

In this work Covey presents a 7 step approach to overcoming personal and professional issues.

F-LEX Bristol

F-LEX will now be conducting weekly onboarding sessions in Bristol!

We're looking forward to this opportunity to meet aspiring lawyers from across the South-West. If you would like to attend and become part of our network please apply on our website or send your CV to bookings@flex.legal with a message explaining that you wish to onboard in Bristol. Alternatively, if you know somebody that would benefit from this, pass this message on to them!

Our first session will take place Thursday 3rd October.

See you there!
