Many firms have started their recruitment processes to find new trainee patent attorneys who will join them in approximately Autumn 2018. Some current vacancies can be found on our website here. Vacancies can also be found via the IP Careers website here, but it is also worth looking at firms’ websites directly. Speculative applications are often encouraged when there isn’t a specific vacancy advertised.
Some firms are holding open days or offering work experience so that you can find out what it is like to be an attorney or lawyer before applying for a job. Take a look at the open days offered by Mewburn Ellis here, or the work experience workshops offered by Bristows here.
