Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer is a major international law firm, providing business law advice of the highest quality. We want to be the law firm that clients turn to for legal advice where it most matters, wherever in the world that may be. The Firm has over 2,400 lawyers in 28 offices around the world, providing a comprehensive service to national and multinational corporations, financial institutions and governments.
Our people make our firm - we are a people business and want to create a welcoming and supportive environment where all can flourish. We see diversity as a strength which creates fresh perspectives and generates new ideas. We enjoy our work and are determined to do an outstanding job. We deliver best when working in teams.
We think and work globally - we don’t just say we are one firm; we act like one firm right across the world. We work wherever our clients need us. This is how we define ourselves, not by reference to where we have offices. Cross-border work isn’t just what we do, it is what we excel at. We understand what it really takes to work across different legal systems and commercial environments and to bridge language and cultural gaps.
We aim to add value in everything we do - we are passionate about helping our clients succeed. We use our experience and creativity to help clients make judgements and achieve their goals. In everything we do, we seek to make a real difference to the communities in which we operate.
Spring Scheme Overview
We’ll show you what life as an international commercial lawyer is like, and what sets us apart from other firms, so you can make a confident decision on whether to apply for a vacation scheme or training contract. You’ll also meet trainees, associates and partners, and learn about improving your application from our graduate recruitment team.
This opportunity lasts for two days and is a practical scheme to help you develop your understanding of our selection process and the skills you need to demonstrate to secure a vacation scheme. Following this you may be invited to interview for a vacation scheme commencing in 2022.
The spring scheme will take place 6-7 April 2022.
Our 2020/2021 workshops and events were held virtually. We hope that our 2021/2022 workshops can be held in person at our new Bishopsgate location, although this will be determined on further guidance from the firm. Alternatively, we are open to host virtually again this year.
This workshop is open to both first-year on a three-year course and second-year students on a four-year course, from any degree discipline.
The spring scheme will take place 6-7 April 2022. You must be available to attend both days from 9am – 6pm.
