Summer Placements

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.

  • Our application process for summer placements in 2020 closed at 12 noon on Friday 14 February 2020.

    Details of our summer placements for 2021 will be available in February 2021.

    University Law Fairs: We attend autumn law fairs at Edinburgh, Glasgow, Strathclyde, Aberdeen and Dundee Universities and would be pleased to meet you and give you more information about MacRoberts and our summer placement programme there. You will also have the opportunity to meet with some of our current trainees and ask them any questions you may have.
