Lewis Silkin Spring Workshops & Open Evening
Our three day workshops in April are a great opportunity to gain a feel for life at Lewis Silkin. If doing a work placement at a law firm conjures up images of endless photocopying and running errands for partners, think again! At Lewis Silkin, we'll give you an insight into what it's like to work for a fun, fast-paced and innovative law firm.
During the course of the three days you will get legal practice group overviews from our legal practice group heads, take part in interactive activities and spend a day with one of our teams. Our aim is to make your time with us as informative and fun as possible.
We also run vacation scheme weeks in our Cardiff office in June if you want the opportunity to experience what it is like to work with our Employment or Real Estate teams in Cardiff.
If you’re unable to attend our Spring Workshops but would still like the opportunity to meet us then apply for our Open Evening either in Cardiff or London. We’ll provide you with an insight into what it really is like to work at Lewis Silkin. During the evening you will have presentations from our partners and network with our existing trainees and key fee earners from across the firm.
Who we are looking for?
Whatever your background, your commitment and enthusiasm towards progressing a career in law must shine through. We take on recruits from all sorts of backgrounds - you may have just graduated with a law degree or, perhaps like some of our previous trainees, you are someone who has been in industry for a while and are looking for a complete career change. Therefore, we would be interested to hear from you if you're a second year law student, final year non-law student, a graduate or someone looking to change career.
Excellent A Levels (minimum AAB or equivalent) and normally at least a 2:1 degree, go without saying. But we're not just looking for academics. To stand out above the rest, you will need to be a good team player, with a 'get on and do' attitude - whether that's doing stimulating work or the more mundane but no less necessary tasks. Above all, we are looking for people who get on with people. This is important to us because we strive to be helpful expert lawyers with whom our clients enjoy working.
