Our Bright Futures Programme: Aimed at first year law students and penultimate year non-law students this programme is designed to give you your first real taste into working life at an international law firm.

You will spend a week sitting in one of our core departments where you will be closely supervised by one of our lawyers. You will be given a range of exciting tasks to help you understand what life as a trainee would be like. As well as having a dedicated supervisor for the week you will also be allocated a trainee buddy who will be on hand to answer any questions you may have and give you a real insight into life at our firm. We also offer the opportunity to be fast tracked to our vacation scheme assessment centre the following year.

Our Open Days: Open Days are an excellent way for you to gain real insight into our firm before you consider formally applying.

The day will start with an overview of the firm, introducing you to our business and what differentiates us from our competitors.  You will take part in a number of interactive presentations and workshops designed to build up your business acumen, as well as hearing in detail from the Graduate Recruitment team around what we are looking for and how you can make a successful application. You will also have several opportunities to meet with our trainees where you will be able to find out what trainee life is really like on a day-to-day basis.

Open Days are aimed at students in their first year of undergraduate study or above, either from a law or non-law background.
