Latham & Watkins PRIME Programme

Monday 20th August

On Monday 20th August Latham & Watkins, a leading international law firm, will be holding an insight day at its London office for 40 Year 11 and 12 students interested in becoming a commercial lawyer or working in business roles within a law firm.

The day will be a great opportunity to gain an insight into what working at a commercial law firm is like, what it is like to complete a training contract at Latham & Watkins as well as what a business role in a law firm may involve, including working in departments such as Technology, Human Resources, Operations and Recruitment, amongst others. The day will also cover what the firm is looking for from future applicants.

In addition, Latham & Watkins is offering the exclusive opportunity to apply for a one week work experience placement with Latham & Watkins, which will take place during half term in October 2018.

Students who want to complete the work experience placement but cannot attend the insight day are encouraged to apply below and express an interest in the placement. Students who attend the insight day will be invited to apply to the work experience placement at the end of the event.
