Placements provide invaluable experience, allowing you to choose the right firm for you and can even fast track you to a place on the assessment day for a training contract.
We offer 40 placements of one week each during June. On your placement you will experience a real week in the life of a trainee solicitor which includes real responsibility, working on real case files and attending real client meetings. You will be 'buddied up' with a trainee, who will be able to answer any questions you may have, no matter how big or small. You will also be set a mini project to complete which will help you to get to know the people in your office and across the firm whilst also getting a feel for our culture and values.
And of course, you will be invited to any number of socials, lunches and other activities that are happening, not only in the week you join us, but throughout the year.
