The in-depth experience you need
See if we’re the ones for you on this intense programme of work and networking. We offer three vacation schemes: the summer scheme for penultimate-year law students, and the spring and winter schemes for final-year and graduate applicants of all disciplines. All, of course, packed with highlights.
I sat with a banking team on my vacation scheme. They’d just had elections in Nigeria, so I was helping with a client briefing, then a deal in Tanzania. It was incredible work.”

Who can apply?
Which scheme should I apply for?
Before you start
The legal world is fiercely competitive. That’s why, at the beginning of your vacation scheme, we offer a rare feature: an honest feedback session on your application and how to strengthen it. That way, when you come to apply for a training contract – even if it’s not with us – you’re more prepared to succeed.
What you’ll do
Your work experience is your chance to find out if law is right for you. You’ll spend time working in one of our practice areas, sampling trainee life and learning how we operate. You’ll breathe in our culture too and as you move through a packed schedule – everything from social events to workshops – you’re guaranteed to find a week to remember.
Making the most of your time
The best way to get the most out of your vacation scheme is to take part in every opportunity you can, from work exposure to social networking events. Find out about how our trainees did just that – and what they gained from it.
The work you’ll do
During your time with us, we’ll treat you just as we treat our trainees. You’ll do the work they do. But exactly what tasks are involved? Find out how you’ll fill your time.
