The programme is designed to give first year university students a real insight to life as a commercial lawyer and the work that we do at Baker McKenzie.
Our aim is to equip students with the skills and knowledge that they need to pursue their career when they return to university; this will be done by a series of interactive workshops, shadowing, networking and one-to-one sessions with graduate recruitment. The first year insight scheme will take place in our London office.
To be eligible for this programme, you must be in your first year of study at a UK university.
