Barcan + Kirby Virtual Summer Vacation Day


Barcan + Kirby Virtual Summer Vacation Day is taking place on the 14th of July from 9am -5pm. Successful students will receive an information pack including client scenarios requiring a small amount of preparation before the day. They will then have the opportunity to meet all our Heads of Departments and their teams to discuss practical advice and guidance at the event.

In addition, our trainee solicitors will be giving a talk about their experiences – this will include interviewing hints and tips. Our former trainees who are now qualified lawyers/ associates and partners will give their stories and students will meet the executive Board. Finally, students will have the chance to chat with our senior team/paralegals and trainees in social break out rooms in-between sessions.

If you would like more information, full details and an application form can be found on our website.

We ran this event last year and it was extremely successful. We even recruited one of the 2021 cohort to join our Trainee Solicitor Programme from this September so you just never know!
