Careers at Slaughter and May

Slaughter and May don’t pigeonhole our lawyers — all are trained to be multi-specialists across a broad range of legal matters.

As a trainee in a Slaughter and May group, you will work on a full range of transactions on which the group advises over a three- or six-month period. In a corporate group, for example, one month you could help guide a client through the defence of a hostile takeover and the next you could be advising that same client on a bond issue. In dispute resolution, you could attend a court hearing on a complex civil litigation matter in the morning, then meet a client to prepare for a mediation that afternoon. In the short term, this will enable you to make a more informed decision about which practice group you should join on qualification. In the long term, it makes for a far more fulfilling career.

Slaughter and May test guides

This will involve analysing material. You will be given information and will be then expected to produce a written summary. You will be assessed on your writing, vocab and communication as well the clarity and accuracy of your work.

The bulk of the assessment is in the form of interviews, one of which will be based around an article which you will be given on the day. Ensure that you prepare for the interviews by knowing the company, its background and its values.
