Duration of Articles
GMI offers a two year article contract, irrespective of whether a candidate has completed full time law school.
Exposure to practices
The firm has a rotation system in place whereby candidate attorneys rotate to different legal practices within the firm on a six monthly basis. Rotation is subject to available positions within a practice and dependent on the practice requirements within the firm from time to time.
At GMI, candidate attorneys earn a basic salary with further increments available for the completion of full time law school, having obtained a Master's degree and on a passing the attorneys admission exam, the conveyancing exam and the like.
