About Stephenson Harwood
We have 10 offices worldwide, a variety of sectors to explore and unlimited opportunities for you to develop an incredible career. Here, you can expect to work in tight, focused teams alongside associates and partners, where you'll always be right at the heart of the action.
We’re dedicated to helping our clients achieve their objectives and we’re proud of the consistently impressive work we do in every practice area of our firm.
We pride ourselves on delivering ground-breaking deals across the globe. As one of our 20 trainees, you’ll be exposed to high-profile clients and cutting-edge projects. With offices in London and across Asia, Europe and the Middle East, our diverse mix of expertise and culture provides deep, local insight and the capability to provide a seamless international service to our clients.
Here at Stephenson Harwood, we pride ourselves on delivering ground-breaking deals across the globe. Whilst it’s no surprise that delivering pioneering, hugely influential and incredibly complex multi-million pound deals is extremely pressurised, what makes Stephenson Harwood different is the open, friendly and honest culture in which we deliver them. Joining us on a insight scheme is the perfect way to sample our culture and the way we work, so you can get a real feel for whether we’re the right firm for you.
Our insight schemes will give you a taste of life at Stephenson Harwood. We’ll make sure you’re involved in quality work and will try to help you experience the areas of law you’re particularly interested in. Typically, you'll spend one or two weeks in our offices, sitting with qualified lawyers and tackling case work. You'll also benefit from an organised programme of interactive sessions, talks and social events. On your first day, we'll assign you a buddy – a current trainee who'll help you settle in, answer your questions and give you an honest overview of what it's like to work for us.
An insight gives you a great opportunity to talk informally to existing trainees, lawyers, partners and the graduate recruitment team to find out why law and Stephenson Harwood are such attractive career options. What’s more, we’ll pay you £350 a week.
The deadline for applications for the spring and summer insight scheme: 31 January 2018.
