CityLawLIVE offers candidates nationwide the chance to spend an intensive, activity-filled day in the company of City lawyers and recruiters from top firms. Attendees must pass through a rigorous selection process that mirrors what they can expect when applying to law firms. We are looking to give candidates possessing ‘the right stuff’ – but not necessarily the right connections – the chance to compete with the best of their cohort of aspiring lawyers. The centrepiece of the event is the opportunity to experience an interactive, transformative presentation by lawyers from two different firms geared to showing what work in the City is really like. There is also a chance to meet, impress and learn from each firm’s recruitment team.
The firms holding workshops are: Baker & McKenzie, Clyde & Co LLP, CMS Cameron McKenna LLP, Dentons, Edwards Wildman Palmer UK LLP, Kirkland & Ellis International LLP, Norton Rose Fulbright, Ropes & Gray, Shearman & Sterling (London) LLP and Weil Gotshal & Manges.
