Insight scheme

Starting to think about law as a career option, but want to get a better understanding of what it really means to be a lawyer in a commercial firm? Then Osborne Clarke’s Insight Scheme is for you.
"Taking part in the Insight Scheme at Osborne Clarke has helped get me to where I am today. I sat in the Commercial Disputes team and completed real-life client work, with fee-earners explaining the context and relevance of my tasks. This experience encouraged me to apply for the Vacation Scheme, and ultimately the Training Contract, and I have now qualified into the Commercial Disputes team."
Holly Baker, Associate
