Virtual Presentations

We are hosting the following virtual presentations in the spring, and you can sign up for both now:

1pm - 2pm, Tuesday 13 February

At Slaughter and May we don't pigeonhole our lawyers - all are trained to be multi-specialists across a broad range of legal matters. But what does this mean?

Join us on 13 February to hear a panel of partners, associates and trainees share their insights into the multi-specialist approach and what this means in practice!

1pm - 2pm, Tuesday 12 March

Hosted by GEN (our Gender Equality Network), this virtual panel and Q&A will include women from across the firm, in both legal and non-legal roles, talking about their career journey to Slaughter and May, sharing their insights into working in commercial law and answering your questions. 

Application Q&As

We run Application Q&As throughout the summer and autumn - at each of these, the trainee recruitment team give an overview of our application and interview process, and answer any questions you have about applying to the firm. These sessions are not recorded.

The next Q&As will take place in June and July 2024, and the dates will be confirmed shortly.
