Summer placements

Our award-winning summer placement scheme Is the ideal introduction to Mills & Reeve. 80% of our trainee solicitors have completed a summer placement with the firm.

You will enjoy two weeks' work experience at one of our offices in Birmingham, Cambridge, Manchester (with the potential for two days in the Leeds office) or Norwich. A competitive allowance will be provided to help with the cost of accommodation, travel and other expenses.

During your time with us, you will work with a variety of lawyers, moving to different parts of our practice every two or three days. You will be placed in situations where you can do real work, such as undertaking legal research, preparing or checking draft documents, attending court, meeting clients or serving proceedings.

We will pair you with one of our trainees who will answer your questions and help you make the most of your experience. Presentations, lectures and social events will help you get to know our culture.
