This September, we are looking for 100 of our brightest law students to join us in central London for an exclusive event designed to help you to secure a coveted Vacation Scheme or Training Contract. This is your chance to meet some of the leading law firms in the world and gain the tools you need to impress during any application process. 

Getting into Law is competitive and that’s why it’s so important to meet and build a relationship with the firms you will be applying to in advance. Not only does our Future Lawyers event give you that chance, but with one-on-one time with trainees, partners and their recruitment teams, you’ll discover which is the right firm for you and how to really impress them.
