Summer Placements

A summer placement will provide invaluable experience, allowing you to choose a firm which is right for you and prepare you for your forthcoming traineeship. You will be placed in two of our practice groups and be given the chance to work alongside our lawyers on a number of live matters and have exposure to a number of our clients. You will be given responsibility from day one. We will assign you a mentor within your department who will offer you day to day support and guidance during your placement and you will also have the opportunity to network with our current trainees and listen to their experience of our firm.


  • The closing date for applications for a 2018 summer placement was 9 February 2018 and we are unable to accept any further applications. Details of our application process and closing date for next year will be available early in 2019.

    University Law Fairs: We attend autumn law fairs at Edinburgh, Glasgow, Strathclyde, Aberdeen and Dundee Universities and would be pleased to meet you and let you have more information about MacRoberts and our summer placement programme there. You would also have the opportunity to meet with some of our current trainees.
