Summer Placement

One great way to find out what it is like to be a Taylor Walton trainee is to join our summer placement. This excellent opportunity allows you to gain first-hand experience of working in a busy and successful law firm. You can expect to carry out real client work and receive support from a solicitor throughout your time with us.

The summer placement is a fantastic learning opportunity which takes place for two weeks at the start of July each year. The placement is aimed at those in their penultimate year of their degree and/or those looking to secure a training contract commencing at our next intake.

We aim to offer successful candidates the opportunity to experience work in both a commercial department and one of our private client departments. If successful in your application, you can expect to be involved in research tasks, attend client meetings and court, practice drafting skills and work alongside experienced fee earners on genuine client matters.

We provide excellent opportunities to enhance your team working skills by working with fellow summer students on a case study considering issues facing the legal market.

The deadline for applications for the summer placement is now closed.  We will be accepting applications for the 2018 summer placement scheme from November 2017.
