The scheme is an introduction to a career in law, so you will meet and interact with professionals from every level of our business – from trainees and recently qualified associates to Partners and recruitment specialists. And it does not just end there. We will keep in regular contact with you following the scheme, you will have access to mentors at the firm and you will be invited back for events and a reunion before you head off for university.

Application process

Applications open on 1st August 2019 and close at midnight on 22nd March 2020 (April scheme) and midnight 12th July 2020 (August scheme).

We do not recruit on a rolling basis and we do not review applications until after the deadline has passed. 

Shortly after submitting your application, you will receive an email from us asking you to complete an online Watson Glaser critical reasoning assessment. This takes approximately 30 minutes and should be completed within 5 days of receiving our email with instructions.

No-one will be rejected at this stage – your score will be taken into consideration alongside the review of your application.
