1st year open day

We hold open days for 1st year law and non-law students every year. 

The aim of the day is to provide an insight into the legal profession in general and more specifically the work of a City law firm. You will hear from partners, associates and trainees at the firm and have the opportunity to talk informally with them.

Reasonable travelling expenses will be reimbursed.


Applications should be made through our online application system*. You will be asked to complete a short form and attach a copy of your covering letter and CV – this should include a full breakdown of your grades per subject for all your GCSEs and A levels (or equivalents).

Please give clear reasons for your application in your covering letter and why you think you could benefit from attending the open day. You should also include the results of any essays and exams that you have completed during your first year at university. Selection is based solely on your application form.
