Offers

All the major firms make summer clerk offers on the 18th of May. No offers can be made before this time. 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 buddy. Your buddy will be one of our junior solicitors who will be able to offer you information and advice on your Summer Clerk Programme. Your buddy 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. 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.​
