Our summer placement programme is the first chapter of your career in law – and a step closer to securing a traineeship with Scotland's leading law firm.

The three-week placement gives you a snapshot of life at Brodies, placing you in one of our expert teams. You'll work alongside some of Scotland's leading lawyers, be involved in interesting and challenging work and expand your knowledge through the completion of a valuable research project.

The summer placement experience is an opportunity for us to get to know you – and for you, in turn, to get to know our people, our business, our culture, and our values.

We'll invite you to breakfast sessions to learn more about other areas of the business, set you up with a mentor and put you in touch with our current trainees so you can pick their brains about life at Brodies. If a traineeship with us is your goal, we'll invite you to participate in an assessment, as part of the recruitment process.

To apply you should be minimum 3rd year of the LLB or 1st year accelerated LLB.
