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 placements 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 Work Insight Scheme? Our virtual scheme aims to reach talented students from less advantaged backgrounds across the UK to provide access to high quality work insight opportunities in a professional environment. The one week insight scheme will help you gain essential employability skills, access to a range of interactive workshops and build connections to help you realise your career path. Eligible candidates will also have access to Social Mobility Business Partnership’s programme, offering further insight from leading companies to further develop your career aspirations. The scheme will take place virtually during July (dates may be subject to change), with a further week offered to eligible students through the SMBP programme during August. Applications typically open in April and close in May. If you are interested in applying for the programme, look out for updates here or via our LinkedIn page.
