Law Gap Year Placement Program

Application Deadline for 2016 Scheme: 20 November 2015

Pinsent Masons are a leading International Law Firm with 18 offices Worldwide including in London.

They offer a paid 8 month Gap Year Programme to students who have completed IB or A Level qualificaitons. The Scheme runs September to April each year with the closing date for applications being the previous November.

You will work on real projects alongside partners, experienced lawyers and trainees with regular mentoring and feedback. This will ensure you develop and learn vital skills such as attention to detail, team working and research techniques. You’ll also attend many of the same training courses as our trainee solicitors, learning from their experiences and picking up job hunting and application tips. And, if you’re planning to study law, the practical experience will help you make sense of the theory you’ll come across at university.

Your exact day-to-day experiences will depend on the practice area you join, but it’s fair to say that no two days will be the same, and you’ll be learning continuously as you work towards identifiable achievements. Typically, this will include drafting and proof-reading documents and letters, carrying out research, liaising with clients by phone, email and at face-to-face meetings; and getting involved in community work. You’ll also learn how to approach different groups of people as you attend seminars and conferences.
