First year insight scheme

Job/scheme locations: 
Type of opportunity: 
Insights programme
Application deadline: 

The first year insight scheme is designed to provide you with an insight into city law and to give you the opportunity to meet trainees, solicitors and partners within the firm.

Whilst the first year insight scheme enables us to meet you, this is a two way process. We want to equip you with the knowledge and offer as much advice as you need to help determine whether a career in law is right for you. 

During the day you will undertake:      

  • A negotiation exercise
  • An application skills workshop
  • Lunch with trainees, solicitors and partners
  • Speed networking
  • Work shadow a trainee

Work shadowing one of our trainees offers invaluable experience. You will get exposure to the work that goes on in one of our practice areas. You may find yourself sitting in on a conference call, assisting with some research or looking through a draft agreement. We will also help you with application forms, offering advice on what you should and shouldn't write. The day is all about helping you decide if a career in law would be right for you so we recommend that you come armed with plenty of questions. You will have several opportunities to speak to trainees, solicitors and partners during the course of the day and we want you to make the most out of the time you spend with us.
