Summer Scheme 2019
Posted on Dec 10, 2018 by Morgan Lewis & Bockius
During the scheme, you will be given as much hands-on experience as possible and will be supervised by a senior lawyer who will provide advice and guidance throughout the placement. You could be conducting legal research for live deals/cases, attending client meetings, sitting in on conference calls, or drafting engagement letters during your time at the firm. You will also be assigned a trainee "buddy" who will act as an informal mentor throughout the placement. You will have the opportunity to attend a number of seminars and workshops, including presentations from each of the London office's practices groups and a Q&A session with some of our trainees. We also organise a number of social events during the scheme, providing you with the opportunity to meet many of our partners, associates, trainees, and business support staff in a more informal setting.
Summer scheme students are assessed for a training contract during the course of the placement. Assessments vary each year, but typically will include a comprehension or written exercise, a research activity, and a group presentation, as well as a partner interview at the end of the scheme.
