Open days

Get an insight into what we do day-to-day and a better idea of what a career at an international firm is really like by taking part in a virtual open day or spending a day in our London office.

Experience Stephenson Harwood

Meet the people, see what we do.

Open days are suitable for anyone currently studying at undergraduate level or beyond. This includes first year students through to post graduates.


What you'll be doing

Come along to a virtual insight day in November or December, or join us for an open day at our London office in January or March and experience what a career at our firm is really like.

You'll meet partners, associates and trainees, as well as the graduate recruitment team, and we'll outline what to expect as a trainee and explain the type of work that we do. You'll also take away helpful information about our training contract, plus answers to all your questions, giving you the confidence to make the right career decisions.

Our open days will make you feel much more confident about whether the law and Stephenson Harwood is right for you.

You will gain an exclusive insight into life at Stephenson Harwood as we only invite a small number of students to attend each open day.

Disability open day

Get an insight into what we do day-to-day and a better idea of what a career at an international firm is really like by spending a day in our London office.

This event is aimed at students in their first year of university and beyond with a disability, neurodiversity, or long-term health condition.

You'll hear from a variety of fee earners, including partners, trainees, and the future talent team. You'll learn more about the type of work that a solicitor at Stephenson Harwood does and take part in sessions aimed at improving key application skills to help you secure a training contract.

You'll meet members of Enable, the firm's disability and neurodiversity network, to find out how they manage their disability in the workplace, and we will provide you with the tools you need to ensure that you are equipped to do your best work at Stephenson Harwood.

This open day will take place on 7 February 2024.

Watch the video below to hear from members of our Enable network discussing how adjustments in the workplace help them to do their best work.

If you have any questions about the open day, would like to speak to a member of the team, or if you need the application form in any kind of different format, please contact
