Our student information days are aimed at students aged 14 to 18 who have an interest in a career in law or as a business professional in the legal sector.

At the information days, students can expect to enjoy:

  • a general introduction to Burges Salmon
  • insights into what a lawyer does and the experiences of trainee and apprentice lawyers
  • information on career routes
  • a workplace experience
  • a commercial perspective, and
  • a negotiation exercise.

The day is intended to be engaging and is hosted by a number of friendly Burges Salmon volunteers.

Feedback from previous student attendees

“I really enjoyed attending the Law Information Day. I have developed a much better understanding for law through the variety of activities we took part in and very interested in the apprenticeship programme. I also hope to apply for Bright Sparks work experience in the next summer.”

“The information gained from today’s event has massively helped to ‘narrow’ down my career options.”

“I am inspired to do an apprenticeship and hopefully at Burges Salmon.”

“It has made me realise how much I want to become a lawyer.”

“Has made me more inspired to study law and gave me ideas for A-levels and ways into law.”

We are proud to be using the Rare Contextual Recruitment System, a way of identifying high-achieving candidates that may have been missed. The tool measures candidate’s relative disadvantage as well as performance, making it easier for us to compare applications. As part of the application form you will be asked for your home postcode while at secondary school, details of your school, if you were eligible for free school meals, if you are a refugee or asylum seeker and whether you are the first generation of your family to go to university. You will find an overview of the Rare tool within our application form.
