The world of law isn’t just about what you do inside the office. It’s about understanding how our clients work, and how our broader team works. That’s where secondments come in, with the chance to spend one of your six-month seats with either a client or in one of our international offices.
Around 70% of our trainees will take on this opportunity in each intake, usually in your second, third or fourth seat. Whenever you do it, there’s a range of opportunities available: you might do anything from working in employment in Hong Kong to working in banking for a client in Canary Wharf. And whatever you take on, you’ll come to understand our clients’ world – and be a better lawyer as a result.
