At Charles Russell Speechlys we have an unusually broad range of skills and experience across the full spectrum of business and personal needs. This gives us a wider perspective, clear insight and a strongly commercial long-term view. We use this approach to secure the growth of our clients as they move confidently into the future.

The Charles Russell Speechlys and Aspiring Solicitors First year event is a great opportunity for first year law and second year non-law students to gain an insight into life at Charles Russell Speechlys.

During the afternoon you’ll receive hints and tips on how to get through the recruitment process, get an insight into life as a trainee and network with people from across the firm.  At the end of the day you should leave with a clear understanding of the firm’s culture.
