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 you 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.
