Summer placements

Our summer placement programme is aimed at law students who are currently in their 3rd year at university or 1st year of the accelerated LLB and looking to secure a traineeship commencing in 2020.

Running for a period of 4-6 weeks over July/August 2018, our placements will provide you with the opportunity to develop your skills in a dynamic, fast paced environment.

You’ll be allocated to a specific team throughout the duration of your placement allowing you to fully immerse yourself into live client projects. Don’t worry though as all of our students are assigned a “buddy” for day to day support as well as a mentor to assign your tasks.

There will be opportunities in many of the following teams:

  • Land & Rural Business
  • Private Client
  • Energy, Strategic Land & Natural Resources
  • Commercial Property
  • Residential Property
  • Housebuilder
  • Litigation
  • Corporate

If you’re successful in gaining a place on our summer placement programme and decide to apply for a traineeship with us, you’ll be guaranteed to get through to the 1st stage of our traineeship recruitment process which will be taking place in October 2018.
