Summer Scheme 2019
Our summer schemes are a great way for you to gain a genuine insight into life as a trainee at Morgan Lewis. We offer up to 10 places on our programme, which runs in early July of each year.
During the scheme, you will be given as much hands-on experience as possible and will be supervised by a senior lawyer who will provide advice and guidance throughout the placement. You could be conducting legal research for live deals/cases, attending client meetings, sitting in on conference calls, or drafting engagement letters during your time at the firm. You will also be assigned a trainee “buddy” who will act as an informal mentor throughout the placement. You will have the opportunity to attend a number of seminars and workshops, including presentations from each of the London office’s practices groups and a Q&A session with some of our trainees. We also organise a number of social events during the scheme, providing you with the opportunity to meet many of our partners, associates, trainees, and business support staff in a more informal setting.
Summer scheme students are assessed for a training contract during the course of the placement. Assessments vary each year, but typically will include a comprehension or written exercise, a research activity, and a group presentation, as well as a partner interview at the end of the scheme.
