Valuable insight; invaluable experience
As a placement student you will have the opportunity to get involved in the work of the department you are sitting in, together with project work across several departments.
We run two week-long vacation placements. These are open to second year law undergraduates, third year non-law graduates and all postgraduates. The placement takes place in the spring. In 2020 the dates for our vacation schemes are 30 March-3 April, and 20-24 April and we offer fives places on each week.
During the course of the week, there are introductions to each department, and there is an opportunity to meet a cross section of people to enable you to sample our friendly and open culture which sets us apart from other firms.
The vacation placement is designed to give you a good idea of what it might be like to work here. The placement also gives us a chance to get to know you - and at the end of it all placement students take part in our interview process for a training contract.
You will have the opportunity to:
• Learn about our core practice areas
• Work with a buddy
• Shadow our lawyers in their day to day working activities
• Attend social events
• Be involved in client work and meetings
• Work on case studies and receive feedback
• Interview for a training contract
If you would like to apply for our Easter placement scheme, please do so via our online system between 1 December and 31 January each year.
