Do you have internships or work experience opportunities?
The only internships or work experience available in the London and Bristol offices are through our formal vacation schemes and open days. We offer various schemes aimed at first year university students through to graduates and career changers who have studied either law or non-law degrees. If you are interested in applying for one of our schemes, our online application process is open from October to January. All applications must be made through the online application form which can be found here, along with further information on each scheme, which can be found here.
Whilst we are unable to offer any work experience outside of the vacation schemes we do run open days throughout the year. These are aimed at all undergraduates, graduates and career changers and should also be applied for through our website.
Unfortunately, we do not accept speculative applications for informal work experience.

I am doing a four year law course with a year abroad, when should I apply for a summer vacation scheme?
Our summer vacation schemes are usually aimed at candidates who are looking to gain a training contract in two years time. However, we do accept applications from law students in their second year, who will be spending a year abroad, in their penultimate year. Alternatively, if you would rather apply for our scheme in your third year you are more than welcome to do so.
