Meet us

We’re always keen to meet people whether that's virtually or face to face. Either way, you can say hello to our people and discover our firm for yourself.

We host a number of events throughout the year.  Some of these are virtual, and some will be in the office when we return. Check out the list below to find one that's right for you. If you need more information, just let us know.

London Spring Workshop

For a great snapshot of RPC, our workshops are a fascinating opportunity to learn, network and get prepared for a career in law.

The workshops are packed full of activities, including:

  • Listening to interactive spotlight presentations on our practice areas and life as a trainee
  • Taking part in skills sessions to prepare you for application season
  • Attending networking events

Studying law? You can join us for this workshop if you’re in your first year.
Studying a non-law degree? You must be in your penultimate year.  

To apply for our London Spring Workshop complete the online application form here.

Our London Spring Workshop takes place on the 16 February 2021. The deadline for applications is the 11 February 2021.

We haven't decided yet whether this event will be virtual or in person.  We'll be able to confirm nearer the time, however the event will go ahead either way.

Summer schemes

London summer scheme

You’ll be welcomed into our London office and given an opportunity to spend time experiencing life in a creative law firm for yourself. It’s also our chance to get to know you and understand what you may be able to offer us. 

During these two weeks, you’ll be fully integrated into our teams, getting involved in projects and giving you a fantastic insight into whether a career at RPC is right for you, and if you’re right for us.

What's more, our Summer Schemes can be delivered virtually. You will experience the same RPC environment and culture, just online.

Hong Kong Summer Programme

We run a summer programme in our Hong Kong office for candidates with Chinese capability. Successful applicants will spend two weeks with us, during which you’ll have time in both of our Insurance & Commercial Disputes and Corporate teams to experience different practice areas.

This is as much a chance for us to get to know you as you to know us. During the programme, you’ll take part in our Training Contract assessment, which includes a group discussion, a group presentation and written skills assessments. If you’re successful, you’ll be invited to a motivation interview by a People Resourcing Team member and an Associate. The last round of the selection process is a Partners' panel interview.
