Ahead with Ashurst (12 – 16 April 2021) deadline: 8 January 2021, £275 per week
In the first year of your law degree or penultimate year of a non-law degree and keen to find out more about law in the City and whether it’s right for you?
Our Ahead at Ashurst programme offers a blend of work experience and employability skills sessions to give you the tools you need to make career decisions and ace your applications.

Training Contract (2023/2024 intakes) deadline: 25 June 2021, £46,000 starting salary
A training contract at Ashurst will move your mind beyond technical knowledge of the law. Ultimately, we want to help you become a thought leader with a reputation for clear, perceptive and influential advice – a professional in whom governments and leading businesses the world over can place their trust.
You’ll need to become a shrewd negotiator, have an ability to read both balance sheets and behaviours, and become a commercial strategist with a deep understanding of specific industries.
Our training contract will start you on that road. We will plan closely with you four seats of six months each, that will broaden your world view and hone your talents. At least one seat will be in a finance practice and another within a transactional department. You will also have the opportunity to apply for an overseas or client secondment.
Summer Vacation Scheme (21 June – 9 July 2021) deadline: 29 January 2021, £400 per week
We have one three-week summer vacation scheme which is open to finalist and graduates of all degree disciplines, as well as penultimate year law students.
During the vacation scheme, attendees will experience two specific departments or practice areas, under the close guidance and supervision of a solicitor. Apart from this ‘live’ work experience, there are formal training sessions comprised of lectures, workshops, and plenty of networking opportunities and social.
Attendees are also encouraged to meet and interact with a wide variety of solicitors and other staff in the firm during informal gatherings. In particular, attendees are required to spend time with the current cohort of trainee solicitors, to gain a perspective on completing a training contract at Ashurst in the future.
