Virtual Learning Experience

Virtual Work Experience


If you haven’t yet made up your mind which firm you want to join (or even whether law is for you), a workshop or open day offers the chance to get an inside view of Freshfields.

You’ll get a taste of what life as an international lawyer is like, and what sets us apart from other law firms. You will also meet trainees, associates and partners, and learn about improving future applications from our graduate recruitment team.

No matter what stage you’re at, or what you studied/are studying, a workshop offers something for everyone. Our workshops have specific eligibility criteria and require an application, whereas our open events are available for anyone to join just by signing up. Find out more about the workshops on offer and how to apply.

Our 2020/2021 workshops and events were held virtually. We hope that our 2021/2022 workshops can be held in person at our new Bishopsgate location, although this will be determined on further guidance from the firm. Alternatively, we are open to host virtually again this year.
