Experience life in the legal profession

Working with us during the summer will offer you the opportunity to participate in work-based learning and gain valuable experience of life in the legal profession.

We offer students a four-week placement in one of our offices, generally working in two different practice areas and aim to provide you with an insight into the firm and our culture. You can expect to get involved in a variety of work including, for example, carrying out research and shadowing trainees.

Our application process for our 2022 summer placements is now closed. Details of our application process for our 2023 summer placements will be available early next year.
