Open to students in their penultimate or final year studying law or final year of a non-law degree, it's the perfect opportunity to find out more about RPC before you submit your summer scheme or training contract application. If you have a genuine interest in a career in law and are a creative thinker with a desire to make a real difference, we want to hear from you.

Our London Insight Day takes place on 4 November 2019.

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.

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.
