We are delighted to announce that our sponsors for this academic year are Freshfields and Allen and Overy LLP!
Freshfields is a multinational law firm with 275 years experience with over 2,400 lawyers in 28 offices around the world delivering the highest quality of business law advice. Working best within teams and part of the Magic Circle of elite British law firms, Freshfields strive to meet the highest of standards breaking new legal ground to help their clients.
Sponsoring us for their second year, Allen and Overy have built a truly global network now spanning 44 offices in 31 countries. They have also developed strong ties with law firms in over 100 countries where they do not have a presence. This network makes them one of the largest and most connected law firms in the world, with a global reach and local depth that is simply unrivalled.
We are excited to build on these relationship over the coming year with both firms, and will keep our students up to date with graduate opportunities. I am certain that there will be UoM PPE students bolstering the ranks of these prestigious law firms for the next years as a result of this partnership.
On Thursday the 25th of October, Freshfields are hosting a panel presentation for students from the University of Manchester at the Radisson Blu Hotel. The event will be attended by a number of Freshfields’ partners, associates and trainees, as well as representatives from graduate recruitment. They will talk about the numerous programmes (including their workshops and summer vacation schemes) for which students will be eligible at different stages. They will also cover the application process for the training contract and other programmes. There will be a Q&A with the panel and the presentation will be followed by a networking drinks with Freshfields' representatives.
It's a great opportunity for any PPE students considering a career in law to gain an insight into the Magic Circle of elite British law firms.
