The programme is designed to give first year university
students a real insight to life as a commercial lawyer and the work
that we do at Baker McKenzie.
Our aim is to equip students with the skills and
knowledge that they need to pursue their career when they return to
university; this will be done by a series of interactive workshops,
shadowing, networking and one-to-one sessions with graduate recruitment.
We are hopeful that the First Year Insight Scheme will
take place in our London office, however are conscious that given
the unprecedented circumstances regarding the spread of Covid-19, we
may need to adapt the scheme to enable it to take place remotely. If
this is the case, it will still take place on the same dates.
To be eligible for this programme, you must be in your
first year of study at a UK university.

Our Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion
Baker McKenzie has a culture of diversity and inclusion in its
DNA – since our beginning, the differences of our people have
helped us to work fluently across borders, cultures and practices.
This is intrinsic to everything we do and underpins Baker
McKenzie's vision to be the global law firm of choice. We
understand that organisations work best when people with different
backgrounds and points of view are brought together. We also know
people perform at their best when they can be themselves at work.
Baker McKenzie is committed to serving our clients with innovative
solutions brought about by a diverse talent pool and an inclusive community.
The London office mirrors the wider firm in encouraging the best
people, regardless of race, culture, religion or belief (if any),
gender, gender identity and expression, disability, sexual
orientation or age, to fulfil their professional aspirations with
us so as to create an exciting and diverse legal environment.
