Macfarlanes, a London-based law firm, are hosting an open day in their London office for penultimate year students interested in pursuing a career in law, and specifically a vacation scheme with Macfarlanes, on 8th January 2020.  

About the Open Day

The open evening will showcase the Macfarlanes vacation scheme and highlight the areas of practice the firm specialise in.

Our vacation schemes are designed to give you an insight into life as a trainee over the course of two weeks.  As a vacation scheme student you will be given as much hands-on experience as possible, enabling you to develop a real understanding of the firm's culture and our work.  You might draft a letter and then work through the draft with a solicitor or trainee; or you might do some research on a live issue for a client.  Alternatively, you may be taken to client meetings or to meet counsel.

The two weeks will be split across two different practice areas to maximise your exposure.  You will find yourself working alongside a partner, solicitor or trainee. At the same time, you will undertake a mock transaction that will run for the duration of your placement.

Away from the work, the scheme has a strong social component.  As well as the organised events, socials with our trainees for example, or lunch with our partners, there are many opportunities to get to know people throughout the firm and to find out if Macfarlanes is right for you.

By attending the Macfarlanes open day on Wednesday 8th January, you will learn more about the application process, and what the firm are looking for, ahead of the firm’s vacation scheme application deadline on 31st January 2020.

Reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed to attendees.

About Macfarlanes 

Macfarlanes is a distinctive London-based law firm, focused on its clients and on delivering excellence in the international legal market.  The firm is known for the quality of its work; not just in dealing with the full range of corporate and commercial matters, but in advising clients on their private affairs as well.

Macfarlanes has made a deliberate choice to remain smaller than many of its peers.  The cohesive nature of the firm means that clients benefit from collective experience and close-knit teams.  The firm has decided against growth at the expense of quality, against size at the expense of efficiency and agility.  So whilst large enough to advise on the most complex matters, the firm is also small enough to ensure that its people and work are exceptional, without fail.
