Working with us during the summer will offer you the opportunity to participate in work-based learning and gain valuable experience of life in the legal profession.
We offer students a four-week placement in one of our offices, generally working in two different practice areas and aim to provide you with an insight into the firm and our culture. You can expect to get involved in a variety of work including, for example, carrying out research and shadowing trainees.
The closing date for applications for a 2019 summer placement was 15 February 2019 and we are unable to accept any further applications. Details of our application process and closing date for next year will be available early in 2020.
University Law Fairs: We attend autumn law fairs at Edinburgh, Glasgow, Strathclyde, Aberdeen and Dundee Universities and would be pleased to meet you and let you have more information about MacRoberts and our summer placement programme there. You would also have the opportunity to meet with some of our current trainees.
