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.
First Year Insight Day
The first year insight day is designed to provide you with an insight into City Law and to give you the opportunity to meet trainees, solicitors and partners within the firm.
During the day you will undertake:
· A negotiation exercise
· An application skills workshop with graduate recruitment
· Lunch with trainees, solicitors and partners
· Speed networking
Work shadow a trainee Whilst the day enables us to meet you, this is a two-way process. Work-shadowing one of our trainees offers invaluable experience. You will get exposure to the work that goes on in one of our practice areas. We will also help you with application forms, offering advice on what you should and shouldn’t write.
The day is all about helping you decide if a career in law would be right for you so we recommend that you come armed with plenty of questions.
Our 2020 first year insight day will be held on Wednesday 15 April.
