School students

We have created a careers blog tailored to students who are exploring whether a career in a law firm is for them. The blog is formed of video and written posts that have been created by individuals at the firm. They talk about their own career paths, what they wish they had known at the start of their journey and their top tips on how to get ahead. To find out more, visit our Careers Insights page. You can also email us to ask any burning questions you would like answered on the blog.

If you are in Year 12 at school and looking for work placement and insight opportunities, we have two schemes available:

Lead in to Law
This is our two year talent development programme run in partnership with diversity specialists Rare Recruitment. The programme is focused on increasing access to the legal profession for students from socially diverse backgrounds. It offers university application support, office visits, mentoring and work experience. Applications open in autumn each year. To find out more and to apply, visit the Lead in to Law page.

If you are unsure about a legal career and want a better understanding of careers in the City, then why not consider our Excellerators programme? We offer a week of work experience at our office in the Easter holidays, followed by a week as part of the Social Mobility Business Partnership’s Insight programme in the summer holidays. This involves visits to a range of different organisations such as Verizon Media, BT and Microsoft. Applications open in January and only UK state school students who reside in London or surrounding areas are eligible to apply. Email us for more information or to apply.
