July, 27, 2017
Five legal graduates will shortly be joining Horwich Farrelly as full-time fee earners following the culmination of the firm’s summer Vacation Scheme.
The two week placement – double the length of those offered by the majority of firms – is open to third year law students and those who have recently completed a Legal Practice Course (LPC).

Designed to provide an insight in working in a busy legal practice, a cohort of 14 spent time shadowing experienced lawyers in a number of departments, visited court to observe a real life trial and attended workshops in areas such as interview technique and how LinkedIn can support career development.
One of those joining the firm on a full-time basis is 22-year-old Mason Mott-Roberts, who has recently completed an LPC at BPP Leeds. Mason said “I found the scheme to be a really informative and practical insight into the specialist work Horwich Farrelly does for its clients. It was also super enjoyable.
“Everyone from the Partners to my department buddies was incredibly accommodating to me as well as the others on the placement. One of the highlights of the scheme was acting as the claimant barrister in our mock trial; taking that ‘leap’ out of my comfort zone was quite the learning experience!”
Rob Barrett, Managing Partner for Horwich Farrelly explained, “While this was only the second Vacation Scheme we’ve held to date, we were really impressed by both the calibre of applicants and the passion and dedication shown by those accepted on to the placement.
“We look forward to welcoming the five who have accepted full time roles in our Counter Fraud and Motor & Casualty teams, and hope that this will be their first step in a flourishing legal career”.
