A student on a vacation placement will be able to use the experience to assess whether they wish to pursue a career in law and to gain an insight into what it is like to work at GL.
It is important that placement students get an overview of the firm as a whole and are able to spend some time within each team.
We offer six students one week placements. The placements take place during the spring and summer. During the placement week we endeavour to give students the opportunity of performing practical tasks such as research, drafting letters, attending client meetings and attending court with a solicitor.
The vacation scheme is open to both law and non-law students who have or expect to obtain a minimum 2.1 degree. The vacation placement scheme is applicable only for second or final year law students, final year non-law students and postgraduates.
On the application form the name, address, contact telephone numbers mobile and home, schools attended and university must be shown. Please also detail your educational qualifications, relevant work experience/employment to date and references. Please also provide an accompanying covering letter.
