Vacation scheme

About the scheme Our month-long, paid vacation schemes are a chance to get to know us. You’ll undertake real work for high-profile clients; attend workshops, presentations and social events; and attend an interview with partners to be considered for a training contract commencing two years later.
Who can apply To be eligible, you must be a law student in your penultimate or final year at university. We also welcome applications from graduates. We’re looking for consistent 2:1s throughout your degree but we’ll always take mitigating circumstances into account – please include as much detail as you’re comfortable with in the additional information box on the online application form.

If your application is shortlisted, you’ll be invited to complete an online assessment. You'll then be invited to attend a translation test and a competency-based interview with a panel including a partner, senior associate, and a member of the graduate recruitment team. We interview on a rolling basis, so please apply early to avoid missing out!
