What we offer

Open days

At our open days, you can meet us in person and/or virtually to learn more about us. We’ll also give you the chance to hear from trainees and associates, and gain insights into our core practice areas and recruitment process.

When you join an open day, you can also participate in a mini group activity which will give you the opportunity to develop your teamwork, communication and analytical skills as well as gain insight into the type of exercises you may undertake at assessment centres.

When is it and when can I apply?

We hold our open days in early December and invite applications from 1 October onward.

Am I eligible?

We welcome applications from undergraduates and graduates.

If you are in your first year at university, you will need to have achieved at least grades ABB (A Level), 34 points (IB), or equivalent.

If you are in your second year or beyond, we ask for a 2:1 (actual or predicted). For those who have completed a law conversion course (PGDL), we look for a merit or distinction.

If you have other academic qualifications, use our application form to explain these and give context. If you would like to apply but don’t have these academic grades, we would be interested to hear about your individual circumstances, which we will consider.

To apply for a place on our open day we ask you to complete a short application form. If you’re successful, you’ll then receive an invitation to join us.

We are committed to ensuring that our recruitment processes are fully inclusive and as barrier-free as possible. This includes making adjustments for candidates with disabilities or long-term health conditions. If you wish to discuss adjustments or issues at any stage of the recruitment process, please contact our Early Careers team who will be happy to help you.

Some adjustments we have made in the past include (but are not limited to) providing extra time for reading and writing, different interview formats, extra time at interviews, and additional guidance and support, where appropriate, at each stage.
