Dickson Minto, Edinburgh and London based law firm, has asked for the following to be circulated:
The Dickson Minto Commercial Law and Business Entities Prize
The Partners of Dickson Minto are delighted to announce that this year they will sponsor a new academic prize. It will be awarded to the student who attains the highest aggregate mark in Commercial Law and Business Entities and will be a cash prize of £1,000.
Dickson Minto is a boutique law firm specialising in corporate transactions, with offices in Edinburgh and London. We are one of the top-rated corporate and commercial legal practices in the UK.
We are holding a careers insight evening on Wednesday, 15th February 2017 at our offices in Charlotte Square for which students in their second year of an LLB hons degree can apply for a place. Further details on the format of the evening and how to apply will be publicised shortly.
Trainee recruitment is the backbone of our business – seven out of our last 10 partners joined the firm as trainees. Students choose us because we guarantee London based training, we cover the Scots law Diploma in Professional Legal Practice fees and we provide a challenging and fun environment where hard work is rewarded. We choose them because we take on only the top graduates and when we train the best, we want to keep hold of them.
We offer two traineeships designed to give graduates extensive legal experience – one focuses on corporate law and the other on commercial property.
We also offer summer internships which students can apply for during their third year of an LLB hons degree. Internships are another route into our firm as all students who are with us over the summer will be considered for a future traineeship.
