Ahead with Ashurst

In the first year of your university law degree and keen to find out more about law in the City and whether it's right for you. Our Ahead with Ashurst programme offers a blend of work experience, mentoring support and training to give you the tools you need to make career decisions and excel in your applications.

9 April 2018 – 13 April 2018
Apply between 1 September 2017 – 7 January 2018

Those who've won a place on the programme will also be the first to be considered for campus ambassador positions with priority early consideration for vacation scheme places. We aim to demonstrate how the business of law works, from how we make a profit to how a client deal works, to help demystify the industry but also help you decide whether this is the right career for you. You will spend time getting to know our business, partners, associates and trainees.

Vacation schemes

The best way to understand what it feels like to work here is to actually work here! Every year, we hold three vacation schemes – two three-week summer schemes and a single one-week scheme in the winter – each designed 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; in fact, we organise the schemes with a committee of trainees who’ve been where you’ve been and know the best way to introduce you to the firm.
