Our trainee solicitor events are aimed at university level students and graduates. Dive in and discover what life at the firm is like.

Open days

We will be holding open days at our Bristol office on the 3 & 5 May 2022.

The days will include talks from our lawyers, from trainee solicitor to partner level, group workshops and the chance to find out more about our application process. There will also be the opportunity to network with our trainee solicitors and recruitment team.

*Please note that we will follow government guidelines regarding social distancing and we will make the decision nearer the time to run our open days online if it is advised to do so.

Presentation evenings

We will be holding virtual presentation evenings on the below dates:

  • 18 November 2021 in our Bristol office
  • 25 November 2021 in our Edinburgh office
  • 30 November 2021 - virtual event

The evenings will consist of a welcome presentation from a partner, a talk on ‘life as a trainee’ at the firm, and information on the training contract application process. There will be a chance to network and ask questions following the talk.

'Food for thought' events

In addition to our presentation evenings we run a series of more informal events to provide guidance on applying for vacation schemes and training contracts. Our ‘food for thought’ sessions focus on application tips and improving commercial awareness and include a Q&A with trainees and the recruitment team. The lunchtime events will be held online on the following dates:

What others say...

It was refreshing to spend time at a firm where it is clear their values are central to life at the firm and not just marketing spiel. The structure of the day really delivered a fantastic insight into life at Burges Salmon and commercial law in a wider sense, speaking to trainees informally throughout the day was hugely beneficial.
