Gibson Dunn offers open days to provide an insight into life as a trainee at our firm and, more generally, the day-to-day life of a commercial solicitor at a top international law firm. They are particularly useful for candidates deciding what they want to do with their careers.
Our open days are packed with seminars, talks and interactive workshops, including partner panel sessions introducing you to the practice areas of the firm. They also include an opportunity to meet our partners, associates and trainees informally over lunch and evening drinks.
Our General Open Day will be held in December 2017. Please check our website for further details.
Applications are welcome from law students in their penultimate year of study, students of other disciplines in their final year of study, those who have already graduated (in any discipline) and those who are already studying on their GDL or LPC course. Priority will be given to those who are considering starting a training contract with the firm in September 2019.
Our First Year Insight Scheme will be held on Thursday 27th April 2017. Applications are welcome from law students in their first year of undergraduate study and students of other disciplines in their first or second year of study. To apply, please click here.
The First Year Insight Scheme is designed for those researching a legal career. The day is packed with informative sessions to help you understand what it is like to work in a commercial law firm, including a partner panel session, a commercial awareness workshop, a Q&A with our trainees and some invaluable tips on interviews and application forms as well as how to distinguish between different law firm cultures.
