Are you wondering whether to apply to Brodies for a summer placement? Or did you miss your university law fair and would like some more information? Perhaps you have some unanswered questions? Don’t worry because we have the perfect event for you: our summer placement evening, running this month in our offices in Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow. This event is open to 3rd and 4th year LLB and 1st and 2nd year accelerated LLB students. In 2015 our event has a new twist – it is Mexican themed!

We have organised a ‘build your own burrito’ buffet where you can choose from several tasty fillings (vegetarian and gluten free options also available). Add cheese, peppers, guacamole, or even jalapenos if you are feeling brave! We have Mexican-themed beer as well as wine and soft drinks. Our night would not be complete without a themed photo booth. Moustaches at the ready! It’s #SombreroSelfie time.

During the evening there will be a presentation on the firm where you can hear more about the sectors we work in, our practice areas, recent deals and clients. You will have the chance to chat to Wendy Murphy, our Graduate Programme Advisor, and get some hints and tips for your application. Plus our current trainees will be able to answer any questions you may have, such as what life is like at Brodies. Got questions already? Tweet them to us using the hashtag #BrodiesSP.

“When I decided to attend the Brodies summer placement evening as an aspiring summer student, I was very glad I did. The evening was a great opportunity to gain an insight into the firm. The people were inspiring, friendly and approachable, the work sounded interesting and based on what I had heard about the summer placement, it seemed like a very worthwhile experience. And when I later joined Brodies as a summer student, my initial impression was correct.” – Charlotte Edgar, 1st Year Trainee, Real Estate
