Where ambitious
minds meet


Open Days give you the chance to explore
our culture first hand.

You'll meet some of our exceptional people including our trainees, our lawyers and our partners, as well as the Graduate Recruitment Team who will go through hints and tips around how to make the very best application.

We'll be holding several Open Days here in our Canary Wharf offices between September to December so there are plenty of opportunities for you to come in and meet us before applications close for our schemes and the training contract.

There are 45 places available, and if you get a place, we'll contribute towards your travel expenses.

Please note that due to exceptionally high application numbers, if you apply for an Open Day and are unsuccessful – you will not be able to make an application for another Open Day in the same academic year. You can of course apply for any other position, scheme or programme.
