Extra-curricular and social activities

Getting involved

We're lucky that we enjoy each other's company, and this extends into social,

community outreach and sporting activities. We will encourage you to continue with

the interests that made you interesting to us. Who knows, perhaps you'll introduce

one of them to us?

Your first day with us won't be the daunting

experience you might expect. After accepting your

training contract, you will have regular contact with us.

We allocate you a trainee mentor and you can attend

in-firm training sessions and social events while you

are at law school. Once you join us there are plenty of

activities to get involved in - both within your group

and with the rest of the firm.

We have a variety of clubs, including football, rugby,

cricket, netball, art and a book club. Our diversity

networks organise talks on a range of subjects and

hold regular social events open to everyone in the

firm. Our Trainee Solicitors' Committee is a group run

by 12 trainees across all intakes that represents the

trainee body to the firm. It also organises activities and

parties at various venues in London throughout the

year, including welcome drinks for new trainees. The

firm also holds an annual dinner dance.

The firm's community and pro bono projects offer

you the chance to use your skills to have a positive

social impact. From tutoring young people from

disadvantaged backgrounds, to advising vulnerable

people at our local law centre, we believe in providing

a variety of volunteering opportunities to enable as

many people as possible to get involved. This is not

just the right thing to do - it is good for the firm and

our people. It is part of our culture.
