Osborne Clarke LLP runs a two week summer placement programme, in which interns spend one week each in two different areas of practice. Practical experience is provided with the allocation of tasks similar to those carried out by trainee solicitors; each intern is paired up with a current trainee solicitor for support and assistance and a senior lawyer as work supervisor.
Detailed feedback is delivered at the end of each week and interns who do well during the placement are invited to interview for a training contract.
Apart from the placement programme, the firm also participates in a number of law fairs and visits campuses to conduct presentations. Also offered are opportunities to attend presentation evenings at the Bristol, Reading and London offices during November.
