If you are interested in finding out more about the firm, one of the best things you can do is meet us in person!
This year we will be hosting a number of insight events from our UK offices. These events provide you, as a prospective applicant, with the opportunity to find out more about us prior to making an application for one of our programmes.
We understand that choosing which firms to apply to is difficult; on paper we all look the same! We therefore want to provide you with an insight into what life at the firm is really like, to help you make an informed decision about whether to apply. The insight events will comprise of office-specific webinars in which we will share details about our strategy, the programmes we offer, what life is really like at the firm and how to make the best of your application. We hope you will get a real feel for the firm’s culture.

We participate in employer receptions, on-campus interviews, career fairs and panel discussions. In addition, each year, we host receptions and workshops in several offices across the US to introduce law students to our diverse and inclusive culture.
Here is some feedback from attendees of past receptions:
“I appreciated the informal atmosphere of the reception. I enjoyed the ability to meet many lawyers in different practice groups without rigidity. The food and drinks available added to this positive, truly reception-style atmosphere. I was thankful and impressed that the lawyers took the time out from their busy schedules to answer our questions and socialize with us. It was a great way to learn more about Squire Patton Boggs.”
“I did not realize so many partners from various practices would be in attendance. Having the managing partner attend was also a plus. I expected this to be less of a social and more of a “here is a PowerPoint of who we are.” It was a great experience getting to speaking face-to-face and one-on-one with partners of the firm. I was very happy at the reception and felt welcomed and comfortable. It was my first experience in a law firm, and it surpassed my expectations.”
“The reception was a perfect way to meet associates and partners in a more relaxed setting as opposed to formal interviews. The experience was a wonderful opportunity to evaluate if applying for a summer associate position would be mutually beneficial to myself and the firm based on the conversations and connections made. I am truly thankful for the amazing opportunity.”
