Is a Vacation Scheme the right route for you?

You can either apply directly for a Training Contract with us or via our Vacation Scheme route. Our Vacation Scheme offers a week of work experience in June during which you will be aligned to a team, gain invaluable insight into our business, and find out what makes us different from other law firms.

What are the benefits of applying for a vacation scheme?

Cultural fit. It's an excellent opportunity for you to get a real feel for the firm and whether we are the right fit for you.

Work experience. We tailor our vacation week activities to replicate the tasks you will do as a trainee giving you first-hand experience of working at the firm.

Personal development. The experience is beneficial to your personal development – it helps increase your confidence and your commercial understanding of the law.

Showcase yourself. Maybe most importantly, it's an opportunity for you to show us your ability and the value you could add to the firm as a trainee.
