Summer Legal Work Placement Scheme
Our legal work placements are structured with the goal of providing all participants with a realistic view of practising law at K&L Gates.
During your time in our London office, we offer broad exposure to opportunities in diverse areas such as white collar crime, sports law, M&A, finance, real estate and environment, amongst others. We aim to give you a seat in at least two departments and wherever possible we will allocate you to a seat of your choice.
In addition to some great work during your two weeks with us, we also organise a programme of events, informal lunchtime discussions and seminars designed to give you as clear an impression as possible of life and work as a solicitor in the City.
Varied social activities provide an additional forum for our summer visitors to interact with the firm's lawyers in an informal environment.
In the event that we are not able to offer you a work placement, we also run a series of open days which are interactive, multi-faceted and designed to give you insights into the work and cultural ethos of the firm. These are your opportunity to ask us questions, challenge us, probe and generally satisfy yourself that we are the right kind of firm for you!
The scheme is open to penultimate-year students and final-year students and other relevant post-graduates.
