Find out for yourself

We run Summer placements and open days at all our offices to give you the chance to experience the Addleshaw Goddard culture first-hand. 


Our popular placements are an ideal opportunity to gain an insight into our work, people and culture and were nominated in the "Best Vacation Scheme" category for three years running at the LawCareers.Net awards. We run Easter and Summer placement schemes which give you the chance to sit alongside practising lawyers in two different departments. The schemes also include court trips, case studies and workshops designed to bring to life some of the skills you will need as a trainee lawyer. There are plenty of social events too, where you will have the chance to meet current trainees and practicing lawyers. 

Dates - 2014

The online form for 2014 applications will open on 1 November 2014 and close on 31 January 2015.

Please note we do not accept CVs or make offers on a rolling basis.

Legal Access Scheme

As part of our approach to diversity and encouraging people from different backgrounds to join the legal profession, we reserve eight of our summer placements to students without training contracts who come from less conventional academic areas. The placements will be offered across all three offices.

Applicants who may have been excluded from joining the firm under our usual academic criteria will have the opportunity to be part of the placement scheme and successful candidates who perform well will have the option of applying for a training contract with the firm.

The scheme has been devised in collaboration with the BPP Law School, who administer it, and is open to BPP students currently studying for their GDL or LPC. We launched the Legal Access Scheme in 2007 and since then 68 people have participated with 21 of those subsequently securing a training contract with the firm.

For more details about the scheme please contact BPP careers service directly.
