We hold Law Information Days during February half terms at our Bristol and Edinburgh offices. These 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”.

Next Dates

Dates for the next school information days will be February 2022.
