Across the forthcoming academic year we will be running and attending a series of virtual and in-person events. These include application workshops, panels, diversity and inclusion focused sessions and practice area presentations.

Our events offer you the opportunity to find out more about Macfarlanes and to meet some of our trainees, associates, partners and other firm representatives. Our peak event season runs from September to December so the majority of our events take place during this time but please check this page regularly for any upcoming events. We look forward to meeting you soon.

"It was an honour to attend the KCL Annual Workshop and the “Meet the Trainees Event”. Unsurprisingly, the questions students asked were all too familiar and echoed many of the questions my former third-year self had."
