Our social side
We're lucky that we enjoy each other's company, and this extends into social and sporting activities. We will encourage you to continue with the interests that made you interesting to us.
Your first day with us won't be the daunting experience you might expect. After accepting your training contract, you will have regular contact with us. You are allocated a trainee buddy and attend in-firm training sessions and social events while you study the GDL and LPC. During the GDL you also have the opportunity to participate in the firm's community and pro bono activities. Once you join us there are plenty of activities to get involved with.
Our Trainee Solicitors' Committee is a group of trainees elected by their peers to organise activities and parties at various venues in London throughout the year. They also arrange welcome drinks for new trainees. Once in the firm, there will be many social events to attend – both within your group and with the rest of the firm, including our annual dinner dance.
There is a wide variety of clubs and activities within the firm including:
Our diversity networks organise lunchtime talks on a range of subjects and hold regular social nights open to everyone in the firm.
We also have close links with the arts, and you will be able to take advantage of numerous corporate membership benefits at London theatres and galleries, such as free or discounted tickets.
From time to time, you may have to work long hours. So, to make life a little easier, we have an excellent restaurant and coffee bar on site and a concierge service. We also have a prayer and contemplation room, as well as support and networking groups.
