What is an insight day?

An insight day is an opportunity for you to visit a firm and find out more about what they do. For first year law students, insight days are a way of getting a head start on the training contract application process. For students studying a non-law degree they are a chance to find out more about a career as a solicitor, and how to secure a training contract.

We hold two insight days each spring – one for first year law students and one for non-law students and graduates. We offer 50 places for each day.

What can I expect from an insight day at Burges Salmon?

An insight day at Burges Salmon includes:

  • a welcome talk from a partner or senior associate
  • small group Q&A sessions
  • a group negotiation exercise
  • a networking lunch
  • a tour of the firm.

Attendees are divided into small groups and are accompanied by current trainee solicitors throughout the day. This gives you the opportunity to ask questions that you may not feel comfortable asking a recruiter or partner at interview.

How can I apply?

Applications for our 2018 insight days are now closed. The dates for our 2019 insight days will be released later in the year.

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.
