Insight programme


Applicants will be invited for a telephone interview before offers for a place on our insight scheme are made. In addition to outstanding academics, the qualities we look for in applicants to our insight day are the same as those we look for in our people. These include strong communication skills, attention to detail, research skills, drive, motivation, resilience and an interest in City law and Macfarlanes specifically.    

Application blind and contextual recruitment

We want to recruit the best candidates regardless of their background or where they were educated. The majority of our assessment processes for both our vacation schemes and training programmes are scored application blind. We also use a contextual recruitment tool to understand each applicant's achievements in the context in which they have been gained. We understand that not every candidate's achievements look the same on paper and we are a firm that believes passionately in meritocracy and diversity.

Macfarlanes is unlike any other law firm - we expect you to use the assessments as a chance to build your understanding of us and what makes us different, just as we see it as a chance to gain an understanding of you.
