There is no substitute for direct experience – join us for a genuine insight into TW

Our summer placement is a fantastic opportunity to experience work in the firm as a student trainee solicitor. The structured placement takes place for two weeks in July each year. 

Summer 2024 dates: Monday 15 July – Friday 26 July

The placement is designed for those in their penultimate year of their Law degree or those looking to secure a training contract commencing at our next intake. We aim to offer you the opportunity to experience work in both a commercial department and one of our private client departments. If successful in your application, you can expect to be involved in research tasks, attend client meetings and court, practice drafting skills and work alongside experienced fee earners on genuine client matters.

We provide excellent opportunities to enhance your team working skills by working with fellow summer students on a case study considering issues facing the legal market. You will also meet Partners and Associates, hear about their journey into law and their professional career highlights, as well as work closely and socialise with our trainee solicitors.

Applications for our Summer Placements for 2024 are now closed.

There is nothing better than having the opportunity to experience firm culture first hand. The highlight of the Placement for me was the engaging people I met. Now an Associate, the people continue to be a highlight of working at TW.

The Placement is a genuine insight into the work of a Trainee Solicitor and that of a qualified Lawyer. I knew during my Placement that I wanted to train and qualify at TW for the high quality work and supervision.

I learnt so much during my Placement. I really appreciated the time my Partner supervisor took to give me feedback on the work I did. The client tasks were varied, interesting and helped me apply my legal studies in practice
