Two-week placement schemes are available for a total of 60 law and non-law students, graduates, postgraduates and mature students in the winter, spring and summer holidays.
A placement scheme at Jones Day will give you a proper insight into how our non-rotational training system works. You'll be given real work to do and not just a diet of seminars, visits, presentations and group exercises. We want students to get a taste of how we operate in practice. You'll receive work from trainees, associates and partners and you'll be encouraged to introduce yourself to lawyers in the firm with a view to experiencing work that you think you might be interested in and enjoy. You'll also meet a range of lawyers at various social events throughout the two weeks which will give you a fantastic opportunity to meet people and get to know the firm better. At the end of your two-week scheme we want you to go away with a real feeling of having been involved in the work of a City law firm. You will have a clear picture of what being a trainee at Jones Day will be like and how our training system works. We will pay you an allowance of £400 a week.
