Our winter, spring and summer placement schemes in London, summer placement scheme in Dubai, or summer internship in Hong Kong will give you a real taste of life at the firm. There’s no better way to experience the firm than on one of our placement schemes. Sample our culture and the way we work. You'll get a real feel for whether we’re the right firm for you.

What you'll be doing

Nothing beats on the ground experience.

Join our placement scheme and we'll make sure you're involved in quality work and will try to help you experience any areas of law you're particularly interested in. You'll be sitting with qualified lawyers and tackling some case work. You'll also benefit from an organised programme of interactive sessions, talks and social events.

A placement gives you a great opportunity to talk informally to existing trainees, lawyers, partners and support teams to find out just why the law and Stephenson Harwood are such attractive career options.

Who can apply?

Placement schemes are open to anyone in their penultimate year or final year of a law degree, or final year of study of a non-law degree. We also welcome applications from postgraduates and individuals who have pursued other careers before committing to the legal profession.

Application process

You should complete our online application form.  If we're impressed by your application, we'll ask you to complete our online critical reasoning test and invite you to an interview.

If we offer you a place on our placement scheme after the interview, we'll automatically consider you for a training contract which means that you'll take part in a formal assessment day during your placement.
