First Year Insight DayBy Macfarlanes
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. So, whilst the First Year Insight Day enables us to meet you this is a two way process. We want to equip you with the knowledge and offer as much advice as you need to help determine whether a career in law is right for you.
During the day you will undertake:
- a negotiation exercise
- an application skills workshop
- lunch with trainees, solicitors and partners
- work-shadow a trainee
- speed networking
Work-shadowing one of our trainees will offer invaluable experience.
You will get exposure to the work that goes on in one of our departments. You may find yourself sitting in on a conference call, assisting with some research or looking through a draft agreement. We will also help you with those application forms, offering advice on what you should and shouldn't write. In addition we ask that you come armed with questions. You will have several opportunities to speak to trainees, solicitors and partners during the course of the day. We want you to make the most out of the day and time you spend with us.
When is the First Year Insight Day?
Our 2019 First Year Insight Day will be held on Tuesday 2 April.
