The firm has a long standing tradition of selecting trainee solicitors from the outstanding participants of its Vacation Scheme. Therefore, as an intern, you will be working as an integral part of the team and be exposed to live legal matters that will allow you to hone and demonstrate your abilities in a wide range of legal issues.
You will work day-to-day alongside senior colleagues, who will supervise and guide you while you gain real insight into the culture, focus and operation of the firm. On top of the technical abilities you demonstrate while handling complex matters assigned to you, the firm will also assess whether you would fit with our culture and how you would contribute in our decision making process of offering a training contract.
Who We Are Looking For
We continuously look for talented, ambitious and creative people. We value intelligence, integrity, ambition and commitment - a commitment not only to excellence in service to clients but also a commitment to a long term career with us. If you possess outstanding academic credentials and are interested to collaborate with us, we cordially invite you to apply.
How to Apply
We host Vacation Schemes both in the summer and winter.
Stage 1: Online application for our Vacation Scheme
At this stage, we simply want to know about more about you.
You will be asked to provide details about (i) your education, (ii) your qualifications, and (iii) any relevant work experience that you may have.
Stage 2: First Interview
During the first interview, we aim to get to know each other. We may ask about your skills, capabilities and experience as well as your interests and personal history. The process is more informal. We use this opportunity to learn more about you and to present our firm to you.
Stage 3: Second Interview
We invite a select group of candidates from the first interview to attend a second interview. This process is more formal. We assess your skills and capabilities using a mix of technical, situational and behavioural questions.
Stage 4: Hiring Decision
We aim to make Vacation Scheme offers within three weeks of the second interview.
Stage 5: Vacation Scheme
Vacation Schemes typically last 2 weeks. During this time, you will have the opportunity to take on real responsibility on active client files under direct supervision and guidance. We use the Vacation Schemes as a critical means to assess whether we believe you would fit the firm in terms of culture, technical ability, ability to communicate, attention to detail and work ethic. We offer training contracts to a select group of interns.
