Cripps is hosting an open day at its Tunbridge Wells office on Friday 26 April 2019.

 

The open day is intended to be an opportunity for us to meet people who do not have the usual work experience or academic grades required for our vacation scheme/training contract but who show potential to be a great solicitor.

 

The one day programme will give participants an insight into life within a law firm and will comprise of a number of informative sessions, including:

  • Practical tips for CV writing
  • Talks from various departments across the firm
  • A legal task, similar to one undertaken at an assessment day
  • Interactive Q&A

 

Applicants should have a keen interest in pursuing a legal career at a regional firm with a significant London presence; and be on track to secure, or have secured a 2:1 degree in any field. They must not have already accepted a training contract with any law firm or legal team.

 

If you wish to apply, please send your CV, a cover letter and a completed equal opportunities form to graduates@crippspg.co.uk. The cover letter should address the following question: “You’re on a work experience scheme at a regional law firm and the managing partner gets in the lift with you. You have the duration of the journey from the 10th floor to the ground floor to pitch an idea about a new scheme/event to increase diversity in the firm. What is your idea?” (300 words). Applications close on 31 March 2019.

 

The second stage of the application process will include an interview. For information on how we handle your personal data please refer to our External Privacy Notice which can be found here.
