Apply For This Event
This is an opportunity for 21 Aspiring Solicitors members to learn more about the firm, hear from our current trainees about the work they have been doing and what their experience of training at the firm has been like.
Attendees will also take part in a group exercise where they will be asked to work together to prepare some advice for a client. They will then be asked to present this to a member of the firm (usually a senior associate or partner). The two people who most impress in the group exercise and presentation and who wish to apply to train at the firm will be offered a place on our vacation scheme.
There will also be a networking opportunity with trainees and members of the firm where food and drinks will be provided.
