Trainee Open Day

Experience Kingsley Napley

Our open days are a relaxed and informal way for you to learn more about what makes Kingsley Napley special, and why we have been voted the best law firm in London to work for the past five years in a row.

There are lots of law firms out there, and they all have very different working practices, cultures and environments. That’s why it is so important to find one which is right for you, and which will give you the very best start to your career in law.

We've designed our open day to give you a true insight into the firm; our practice areas and the types of clients we work for, what life is like as a trainee, and how we secured the top spot as the number one ranked law firm to work for!

We want you to get a true picture of who we are and the work we do, what it’s like being a lawyer at KN, and why our culture is so unique. There will be panel discussions and opportunities for questions through-out the day, but rest assured, if you would just like to come and listen, that is absolutely fine as well. We look forward to seeing you.
