First Year Insight Scheme

Macfarlanes LLP
Macfarlanes LLP
  • Entry Requirements: First year undergraduate from any degree discipline , with outstanding academics and an interest in law.
  • Salary: N/A
  • Deadline: 31/03/2021
  • Hide locations
    • London

The first year insight scheme 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.

Whilst the first year insight scheme 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
  • Speed networking
  • Work shadow a trainee

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. 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 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. You will have several opportunities to speak to trainees, solicitors and partners during the course of the day and we want you to make the most out of the time you spend with us.

When is the first year insight scheme?

Our 2021 first year insight scheme will be held in April 2021. 

Who should apply?

We welcome applications from candidates with either a law or non-law background with an outstanding academic record. You will need to be in either the first year of your undergraduate degree or second year of a four-year undergraduate degree.

How to apply?

Applications for our 2021 insight scheme will open on 1 October 2020. The application form itself is simple and is designed to give you every opportunity to impress us.

If your online application for the first year insight day is successful you will be invited for a telephone interview before being offered a place on the day. Telephone interviews will take place from January onwards.
