Vacation schemes

Vacation schemes

Up to 60 trainee solicitors join us each year. Around half of them have taken part in one of our vacation schemes. These schemes are the perfect launch pad for a legal career. Working alongside partners, associates and trainees, you’ll spend up to three weeks supporting client work in key practice areas like corporate, finance and litigation.

What it involves

You'll draft documents, go to meetings, do legal research and, where possible, attend court. It’s invaluable hands-on learning that’s reinforced by tailored workshops, discussions, case studies, work shadowing, social events and more.

We review applications on a rolling basis, so don’t wait until the deadline to get your application to us. We often fill all our places well before then.
