Hassans run one of the most popular summer student vacation programmes in Gibraltar.

As the first law firm outside the United Kingdom to be accredited by the Law Society of England & Wales to offer Training Contracts to aspiring Lawyers, we are pleased to offer law students a first-hand experience and opportunity to put into practice the knowledge acquired during their academic year in one of Gibraltar’s leading law firms.

We are committed to providing students with an opportunity to learn more about the legal profession and our business.  We strongly recommend that students interested in a career at Hassans start their relationship with the firm by applying to take part in our two week programme.

We take our programme very seriously and look at it as an extended interview for a future role within our firm.

What does the Placement entail?

During the placement, students will be involved in challenging work including practical exercises, moots and attending presentations and training, which will enable them to gain real understanding of our practice areas.  They will be supported by some of the most talented and exceptional lawyers in our profession who will inspire students to fulfil their potential and build their future careers.

There will also be opportunities to network with Trainees, Associates and Partners of the Firm at social events and other activities.

The remuneration for the two week placement will be £320.00.

What is expected of each student?

All students are expected to organise their own accommodation for their two week placement and also meet their own transport expenses.

They are to engage fully on all activities which are organised during and after working hours.  Working hours are from 9.30am to 1.00pm and from 2.30pm to 4.00pm Monday to Friday.
