KJB law is built on strong values which ensure their clients’ successful results are at the forefront of all they do. Originating in 1978, the sole partner at the time recognised the need for a localised service which was both of high quality and affordable, an ethos which remains the foundation of how the firm operates today. With this model of combining strong values, affordability and quality outcomes, the firm has continued to grow. And today, their strong reputation in the Canberra market has seen them gain a large client base across Canberra and the region.
With this growth in mind, the role of Legal Assistant has become available with the promotion of a graduate into a practicing role. Joining the Family Law team, you will provide administrative support to the Special Counsel as well as ad hoc support to the family law team.
Duties will include:
  • Legal administration
  • Case management
  • File management
  • Preparation of court documents
  • Legal research as required
  • Calendar and appointment management
  • Client management and new client enquiries
  • General administration
So a great role with a great firm ... what do you need to bring? Your strong administration skills, work ethic and initiative! This role is suited to either an administration professional or a legal student available to work full-time. What is not negotiable is your ability to multi-task and problem solve, whilst maintaining professionalism and high attention to detail.
