The best way to understand what it feels like to work here is to actually work here! Every year, we hold clerkships in each of our offices to give you an intensive experience of our culture and the kind of work we do.

We work hard to make sure they’re as useful and as stimulating as possible. You’ll spend time in one or two departments (depending on which office you’re in), where you’ll work with a supervising partner, a lawyer and a buddy who’ll get you involved in real work. You’ll also attend workshops and department training, as well as get a chance to take part in the team's social events.

At the end of your clerkship, we’ll consider offering you a place on our graduate programme.
