Interview dates and locations
All the major firms make offers on the same date – this year it will be Thursday, 9 May. No offers can be made before that day. Once you've received your offer, you need to make a careful assessment of your options.
You'll have a difficult decision to make about which firm is right for you.
We want to give you every opportunity to consider Bell Gully, its culture and people. You will follow a comprehensive induction programme if you join us, with support at every stage.
If you receive an offer from us you will be allocated a mentor. Your mentor will be one of our junior solicitors who will be able to offer you information and advice on your summer clerk programme. Your mentor will contact you after you receive your offer. He or she will set up a time to meet you and show you around the offices.
If you accept our offer, your mentor will continue to keep in touch with you throughout the year.
During the summer you will also be allocated a supporter to help you in each department.
Again, if you feel you need to ask more questions, please ask – we're only too happy to answer them.
