Macfarlanes trainee experience

We’re delighted to announce the launch of the Macfarlanes trainee experience, an app giving you the opportunity to complete mock trainee tasks and gain an insight into our unique culture.

The programme has been developed by our graduate recruitment and lawtech teams, and all tasks have been modelled on real work and created by our solicitors and trainee solicitors. You can experience work from our corporate and M&A, finance, litigation and private client teams.

We've created this programme because we wanted to make early careers opportunities at City firms more accessible to all, regardless of location and background. We appreciate that it can often be difficult to pursue vacation schemes or first year insight schemes, particularly if you have other commitments and cannot easily spend two weeks in London away from these responsibilities.

In addition to the mock trainee tasks, you will be able to find out more about our practice areas and the culture at Macfarlanes.

The Macfarlanes trainee experience will be launching on Monday 25 October. It will be available for download in the Apple App Store and on Google Play.

What should I do once I’ve completed the Macfarlanes trainee experience?

  • Attend one of our virtual webinars. The practice areas will be running specific sessions to discuss the tasks, the broader work they are involved in and to answer your questions. Register your interest to attend here and we will be in touch with more information once dates are confirmed.
  • Apply for our vacation scheme or training programme. We would also recommend watching our application tips video and referring to our FAQs page.
