<br /> 2019<br /> Edition 23<br /> Law<br /> Vacation Schemes<br /> & Mini-pupillages<br /> targetjobs.co.uk/law<br /> <br /> CONTENTS<br /> Editor's<br /> COLUMN<br /> Law firms and barristers' chambers spend a lot of money training up their future<br /> lawyers (for example, estimates are between £100,000 and £250,000 per<br /> trainee solicitor depending on the firm). Before investing that amount in you,<br /> they are looking for evidence that you have researched the profession and made<br /> sure you are cut out for it. One of the most convincing ways to do this is to get<br /> some legal work experience under your belt. Try:<br /> · An insight programme during your first year of university (see page 14).<br /> · Open days (Slaughter and May offer tips on page 16).<br /> · A vacation scheme (find out how to make the most of them on page 18).<br /> · A mini-pupillage – to rule the Bar in or out of your decision making (page 22).<br /> · Informal experience<a title="TARGETjobs Vacation Schemes &amp; Mini-pupillages 2019 page 1" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/b913a23c?page=1"> 2019 Edition 23 Law Vacation Schemes & Mini-pup</a> <a title="TARGETjobs Vacation Schemes &amp; Mini-pupillages 2019 page 2" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/b913a23c?page=2"> </a> <a title="TARGETjobs Vacation Schemes &amp; Mini-pupillages 2019 page 3" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/b913a23c?page=3"> CONTENTS Editor's COLUMN Law firms a</a> <a title="TARGETjobs Vacation Schemes &amp; Mini-pupillages 2019 page 4" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/b913a23c?page=4"> 2 AD INDEX Advertisers </a> <a title="TARGETjobs Vacation Schemes &amp; Mini-pupillages 2019 page 5" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/b913a23c?page=5"> 3 GGeett ssttaarrtteedd In this section 4 </a> <a title="TARGETjobs Vacation Schemes &amp; Mini-pupillages 2019 page 6" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/b913a23c?page=6"> 4 GET STARTED First things first: early c</a> <a title="TARGETjobs Vacation Schemes &amp; Mini-pupillages 2019 page 7" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/b913a23c?page=7"> pupillage and a vacation placement – the formal w</a> <a title="TARGETjobs Vacation Schemes &amp; Mini-pupillages 2019 page 8" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/b913a23c?page=8"> 6 GET STARTED Taste the world of legal work e</a> <a title="TARGETjobs Vacation Schemes &amp; Mini-pupillages 2019 page 9" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/b913a23c?page=9"> Mooting A moot is a bit like a deba</a> <a title="TARGETjobs Vacation Schemes &amp; Mini-pupillages 2019 page 10" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/b913a23c?page=10"> Sign in/register to: Organise your job search Get</a> <a title="TARGETjobs Vacation Schemes &amp; Mini-pupillages 2019 page 11" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/b913a23c?page=11"> GET STARTED Make every experience count How</a> <a title="TARGETjobs Vacation Schemes &amp; Mini-pupillages 2019 page 12" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/b913a23c?page=12"> 10 GET STARTED Careers advice to my younger se</a> <a title="TARGETjobs Vacation Schemes &amp; Mini-pupillages 2019 page 13" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/b913a23c?page=13"> MAHRIE WEBB Partner at Simmons & Simmons LLP.
