Vacation schemes

The best way to understand what it feels like to work here is to actually work here! Every year, we hold two vacation schemes – one three-week summer scheme and a single one-week scheme in the winter – each designed to give you an intensive experience of our culture and the kind of work we do. We work hard to make sure they’re as useful and as stimulating as possible; in fact, we organise the schemes with a committee of trainees who’ve been where you’ve been and know the best way to introduce you to the firm.

Winter vacation scheme

10 December 2018 – 14 December 2018

Applications closed.

Our winter scheme is designed for finalists or graduates from any degree discipline.

You'll spend your week in a department, being supervised by a qualified solicitor, who'll get you involved in real work. You'll learn about our specialist areas by attending workshops and other sessions. There are also several social events to get to know our partners, associates and current trainees away from the bustle of daily life.
