Osborne Clarke is an award-winning multinational legal practice. We’ve grown rapidly, with 26 global offices and we’re proud to say that our influence and impact can be applied almost anywhere. The core sectors we work in all thrive on innovation; digital business, energy, financial services, life sciences, real estate, recruitment and transport. Our sector teams include lawyers from all legal disciplines, effortlessly blending expertise, insight and enthusiasm. Crucially, we think sector-first, organising ourselves around the current affairs and future challenges of the industries we serve, rather than traditional legal practice areas. It helps keep us one step ahead.

Our two-day Insight Scheme for first-year law and second-year non-law students is designed to give you an insight into life as a lawyer at Osborne Clarke. As part of the placement we’ll equip you with the tools you need to apply for a place on our vacation scheme.

The emphasis of our scheme is on work experience, so we’re proud that our placement allows you to gain hands-on experience in one of our teams. The other important aspect to the scheme is the insight that you’ll get from Partners and our recruitment team, and the opportunity to informally network with our trainees to find out more about their experiences.

“The Insight Scheme was a great way for me to get an insight into Osborne Clarke, its work and its people. It really gave me a flavour of what it would be like to work at the firm, and allowed me to have a unique opportunity to network with a wide range of people. I found my placement useful, insightful and engaging.”

  • Each two-day placement will run over the Easter break in London, Reading and Bristol.
  • The application process will open on 1 October and close on 28 February.

“The Osborne Clarke insight scheme felt more personal than others I had done – everyone from the trainees upwards really made sure that we got a valuable insight to the firm; this alone says fantastic things about the firm.”
