As a student trainee, you will conduct legal research for the matters we work on. You will share an office with one of our lawyers, so you will be able to ask them anything – and accompany them to court hearings and client meetings.

You will also be able to fully participate in all of our educational and social programmes, whether practice-specific or firmwide.
