It’s never too early to start thinking about becoming a brilliant lawyer. Join us during your first year of study and you’ll have a great opportunity to gain the skills you’ll need to successfully apply for a vacation scheme or training contract later on.

First year workshops

We run a two-day workshop at our Hong Kong office. This is designed to give you an idea of what life at the firm is really like. You’ll hear from leading lawyers, take part in interactive workshops, discover the variety of law we practice and attend an evening social events. It’s the perfect opportunity to find out whether a career at Herbert Smith Freehills could be the career for you.


Applications for our 2020 workshop will open from 22 October to 22 November 2020.

Please note that this workshop is only available to those studying in the first year of an undergraduate degree.

If your application is successful, you'll receive formal invitation for the workshop by November 2020.

We are looking for students who demonstrate a strong academic performance to date and can demonstrate strong interpersonal skills.
