Insight day – First year students

We have developed an exciting new fast-track opportunity for first-year students to apply to join Freeths for an insight day at one of 3 offices (Nottingham, Birmingham or Leeds) to take place during April 2023. A number of these students will then be offered a further opportunity to return to Freeths in their second year of university to complete a week-long work experience placement with us and, in the final year of university, those students who have excelled will be offered a place on our legal assistant programme with a view to undertaking a graduate apprenticeship with us leading to qualification as a Solicitor.

This is a unique opportunity to learn about law and gain an insight into how Freeths can support you with building a successful career within the law.

Weeks work experience – Second year students

We have an exciting opportunity for second-year law students to spend a week in one of our Freeths offices, to complete valuable work experience and gain an insight into what life is like at a leading national Law firm. At Freeths we recognise the important role that work experience plays in developing the skills, knowledge, and experience of individuals looking to start or progress their career within the legal industry. Therefore, those students who excel on our vacation work experience scheme will be offered a place on our legal assistant programme with a view to undertaking a graduate apprenticeship with us leading to a qualification as a Solicitor.

The firm will accommodate a limited number of placements in our offices per year, for one-week periods. We endeavour to meet the location preferences of each candidate, but this may not always be possible. Please apply via the link below and upon applying, please state your location preference.

Equal Opportunities & Diversity at Freeths

At Freeths, we are proud to be nationally recognised as an equal opportunities employer. Our recent win of ‘Firm of the Year’ at the UK Diversity Legal Awards is proof of our dedication. We won’t discriminate against you – directly or indirectly – on grounds of race, colour, ethnic or national origin, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, pregnancy, disability, religion or belief, age, social background or part-time status.

We’re committed to an inclusive workplace…

  • Our success is underpinned by the principles of equal opportunity, diversity and inclusion
  • We aim to treat all employees, visitors and clients with respect, courtesy and consideration
  • Employment opportunities are open and accessible to all, based on your personal abilities

We judge you on your individual qualities and merit, rather than whether you fit a certain background or type. If you are an enthusiastic and motivated individual with talent to share, join our ambitious team.

As part of your job application, you are required to complete an Equal Opportunity and Diversity Form. This helps us to monitor the effectiveness of our equality, diversity and inclusion policy – but is not used as part of our selection process itself. We look forward to adding to our continually growing workplace.
