BELFAST law firm Arthur Cox is hosting an open even evening later this month that will provide legal students with an opportunity to engage with the company and discuss trainee position opportunities.

Taking place on Wednesday October 25 at 6.30pm in the firm's Belfast city centre offices, the event will see Arthur Cox partners and associates, as well as current trainees, meet with students to explain more about how best to secure a trainee placement.

As well as a tour of the office and a question-and-answer session, the event will include two in-depth workshops focused on how best to perform at interview and how to draft an effective CV.

Catriona Gibson, managing partner at Arthur Cox, said: “Named this month by the Financial Times on its FT50 list of Europe's most innovative legal firms, Arthur Cox is always in popular demand amongst Northern Ireland's most forward-thinking students when assessing legal trainee options.

“We invest significant time and resources into developing our trainee lawyers. Those joining us will gain unrivalled experience of working across a portfolio of clients that includes multinational heavyweights, leading Northern Ireland corporates and dynamic new start-ups.

“The open evening provides an excellent opportunity for students to get an insight into Arthur Cox's practice areas across corporate and commercial, employment, litigation and dispute resolution, banking and financial services, banking litigation, commercial property, energy and intellectual property.”

Arthur Cox, now in its 21st year, has offices in Dublin, London, New York and Silicon Valley as well as its Belfast headquarters.
