Find a Locum (short-term placement)

You can keep your law practices and businesses operative while you are taking a break or trying to manage a peak in workload.

For short-term placements an employer will usually look for a locum. The locum registry is made up of practising solicitors representing a variety of expertise and experience.

What is the locum service?

The LIV locum service brings employers and locums looking for short-term roles together. The locum service is an online database of candidates who have uploaded their locum specific online CV which employers can purchase and search to find a locum who matches their requirements.
