Freshfields Event For Aspiring Solicitors Members

freshfieldsThe next Freshfields event exclusively for 50 Aspiring Solicitors members is now open for applications.  Freshfields has recruited a number of Aspiring Solicitors members over the last 18 months and we would like the latest opportunity to give our members the chance to find out more about the firm and potentially become a vacation scheme student or future trainee!

Tanya Sadoughi, who attended the event last year had this to say:

“Attending Open Days were a vital step in the process of choosing which firms I would apply to. Had Aspiring Solicitors not organised such an event in partnership with Freshfields, I would never have known how much I would love the firm and I would never have considered applying in the first place. I am now nearing the end of my first week on the Freshfields Vacation Scheme and have loved every second of it, so I am very grateful to Aspiring Solicitors’ work.”

The event will take place on Monday 9th November 2015 at Freshfields, Northcliffe House, 26-28 Tudor Street, London, EC4Y 0BQ.
