Students spend two weeks with the firm; each week they are able to experience a different department, sharing an office with partners, associates and trainees.
The work will include attending meetings, drafting documents and letters and carrying out research. We extend our internal seminar programme to include a number of talks, case studies and negotiating exercises specifically for students to give an authentic taste of a City lawyer's work. The timetable also includes a City tour, plenty of social activities including softball and the option to be involved in sporting activities such as mixed hockey, netball and football. There are also working lunches and informal evening events.
What we are looking for
The firm looks for people who can combine academic excellence with plain common sense; who are determined, articulate and able to think on their feet; who are self-motivated and have a healthy sense of humour.
AAB or equivalent and on track for a 2:1
A law degree is not a necessity – just over half the trainees who joined last year came from a non-law background.
