First step

Our First step programme is here to give you an initial taste of life at Norton Rose Fulbright and help you decide if law really is the right career for you. The programme lasts for one week and is exclusively for first-year undergraduates.Some of the things you can look forward to include:

  • sitting in one of our practice areas
  • getting involved in high profile work
  • gaining insights into our culture
  • taking part in skills workshops
  • attending social events.

We want you to get the most you possibly can out of the experience. So our advice is to ask plenty of questions, say yes to every opportunity you’re offered and, of course, enjoy yourself.

The programme runs from 9-13 April 2018.

Application process

The applications will open from 1 October 2017 – 31 January 2018. If you are successful at this stage, we will invite you to have a telephone interview with someone from our trainee recruitment team. If you are successful, we will then invite you join the scheme.

Your interview is your chance to shine as an individual and really show us who you are, so you will want to perform as well as you can. We have put together some interview advice which will help you on the day.

“First step is an introduction to life as a commercial lawyer. It will help you understand our business and culture, and it’s a positive step towards securing a place as a trainee.”
