Investigate! Play the role of investigator and experience a business crisis first-hand.

We call upon enthusiastic Aspiring Solicitors to take part in a realistic simulation of a regulatory crisis. You will experience how an investigation unfolds in a time pressured environment, the decisions that need to be made along the way, and the sources of evidence at your disposal as you build your understanding of the case. You will search emails, interview suspects, analyse data and make real time decisions to compile evidence and identify the suspects. When you submit your report you’ll find out just how well your team performed!

Our event will also feature an office tour, Legal at PwC presentation and an opportunity to network with PwC professionals over lunch.

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis with a waiting list. Click here for more information about legal careers at PwC.

Feedback from our previous Aspiring Solicitors event:
“Everyone I spoke to at the firm was incredibly friendly; I felt very comfortable asking any questions I had. The variety of activities and opportunity to get feedback was invaluable.”

“The event provided a wonderful opportunity to speak to and engage with with colleagues at different stages of their careers and of differing specialisms at PwC. Speaking with Trainee Solicitors and the graduate team was thoroughly informative.”
