Summer Placement

At WJM we want to give law students a flavour of what it’s like to work in private practice. The summer placement scheme at WJM gives us the opportunity to get to know one another.

We are looking for students in their third year of their LLB or first year of accelerated LLB who demonstrate strong business focus, initiative and have energy and enthusiasm, and a willingness to take responsibility... and a sense of humour helps too!

The 4-week Summer Placement Scheme has been designed to allow you to experience various practice areas within the firm, providing insight to the firm and our culture and to decide if applying for a traineeship at WJM is the route for you. Placements are paid.

The application process for summer 2024 is now open. Placements will be in our Glasgow and Edinburgh offices on 3 June until 28 June 2024. There is no interview process and students will be selected on the merit of their application form.

How to apply

If you are a third year LLB student or first year accelerated LLB student, please complete the Summer Placement Application Form 2024.docx and forward to gradrecruitment@wjm.co.uk  by Wednesday 20 March 2024

We are committed to providing equality of opportunity in employment and to developing working practices and policies that support work-life balance.

We are happy to discuss flexible working and offer a hybrid working model for most roles.

Please tell us if you require any reasonable adjustments during the recruitment process.
