Presentation evenings and insight days are an opportunity for you to visit a firm and find out more about what they do.

For first year law students, these events are a way of getting a head start on the training contract application process. For career changers and 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.

Presentation evenings

We hold presentation evenings at our Bristol and London offices during winter each year. These evenings are open to anyone considering a career in law. A presentation evening at Burges Salmon includes talks from partners and trainees and informal networking with lawyers and members of the recruitment team.

  • London presentation evening: 30 November 2017
  • Bristol presentation evening: 7 December 2017

To attend, please complete an online application form. Applications will close on 20 November 2017.

Insight days

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. 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.

An insight day at Burges Salmon includes:

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

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.
