Diversity

Freshfields believes in nurturing an environment of mutual respect and belongingness. The firm attributes its success to its ability to highlight the diversity of its clients and the societal structure. Freshfields believes that each of its lawyers should make it big in the world irrespective of gender, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, religion or background. Diversity is embedded within the firm's systems, processes and culture in all of its offices. Freshfields hires from among the widest talent pool available and everybody is given a chance to attain their maximum potential. The firm actively consults experts and organizations to implement best practices, establish priorities and to become a leader in diversity initiatives in the near future.

Summer associate program

Freshfields' summer associate program gives students a taste of what it is like to work at a large "City" law firm. The program provides an opportunity to get involved in many different aspects of transactions, from assisting a deal team as it constructs an offering document to helping to draft an underwriting agreement. The firm believes that the very best way to learn about the law is to practice the law. So the firm provides summer associates opportunities to interact one-on-one with partners, counsel and associates while you are actually working with them. Recognizing the importance of formal training, Freshfields also offers summer associates the chance to participate in a range of seminars every year which include topics such as an overview of their corporate practice, the anatomy of a CDO, ethical issues in transactional representation, basic drafting, avoiding common pitfalls - what every lawyer should know about legal ethics, conducting due diligence on people, anywhere in the world, before doing business with them, trends in electronic discovery etc. Freshfields organizes a range of social events every year designed to help summer associates get to know both the city and the people in the law firm better. The summer program at Freshfields is unique in a number of ways. Summer associates get to design their own personal summer experience with the guidance of the work allocation partner. Summer associates receive assignments from partners and associates across different practice areas, but are personally responsible for tracking their own work and providing weekly progress summaries. When assignments are completed, they receive feedback from the relevant associate or partner. Summer associates are formally assessed twice: at the halfway point and again at the end of the summer. However, all supervising lawyers endeavor to provide continuous feedback, advice and encouragement throughout the program.
