Open Days are very relaxed and give you the opportunity to meet with a variety of people at different stages of their career
Open Days take place every year
If you are attracted by the prospect of joining a firm at the forefront of intellectual property law, one of our Open Days for aspiring patent attorneys could give you a real insight as to what the job entails

Open Days are very relaxed and give you the opportunity to meet with a variety of people at different stages of their career journeys.

The programme is designed to give you a better understanding of the daily life of a patent attorney. As well as some formal presentations, it includes interactive workshops giving you the opportunity to get involved with patent drafting and prosecution.

We will finish the day with refreshments and the opportunity to chat with our people about their experiences within the profession so far.

Who should participate?
Open Days work both ways. At the same time as helping you get a better understanding of the profession and our unique approach, we are learning more about you and how well you might fit within our firm.

It’s an exciting process and we frequently discover people that we would love to share the journey with. For this reason, we give priority to Open Day applicants who have completed their studies or are in their final year of undergraduate or post-graduate studies at university.

Participants usually have (or expect to achieve) a minimum of a 2:1 degree, ideally in chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, physics, electronics, engineering or computer science.

Applications for our Autumn 2017 Open Day will be open from June.

How to apply
If you would like to attend one of our Open Days, please complete and submit the online application form from June 2017.

Spaces on our Open Days are limited but we will try to accommodate as many people as possible. Failure to be selected for an Open Day should not discourage applicants from applying for a graduate position.
