Graduate FAQs

Do I need to have work experience?

While it is great if you can demonstrate experience in a position of responsibility (paid or voluntary), work experience is not essential. But we do want to see how you have made good use of your time, so if you haven’t worked, let us know what else you’ve been involved with outside of your studies.

When and where will the interviews take place?

The interviews will take place in our London office (Broadgate Tower). We interview on an ongoing basis, depending on candidate and team availability and cover reasonable travel expenses (public transport).

I don’t see a position in my field, can I apply speculatively?

We would be delighted to hear from you. Please follow the instructions on sending your speculative application on our careers page.

I already have a Certificate in Intellectual Property Law, will I need to do it again?

No, providing you are exempt from the PEB Foundation Examinations.

Which team will I join?

Depending on your degree specialism, you will join one of our two patent practice groups- either Chemistry and Life Sciences or IT and Engineering. Find out more about our Practice Groups.
