We run a Summer work placement scheme for penultimate and final year law students, final year non-law students and graduates.
The work placement scheme is a great opportunity for those interested in commercial law to gain an insight into the firm's work, culture and ethos and to experience the life of a typical Olswang trainee solicitor.
Interns are normally placed in two departments during the scheme and are supervised by an associate and trainee, who ensure that they are given work from a variety of fee-earners in the group. A structured timetable also provides interns with a mixture of talks, skills workshops and social events to attend, ensuring that they are able to meet with and get to know a range of staff.
Apply by 15 January 2017 for a place on our Summer vacation scheme.
