Our summer vacation scheme is designed to give you an idea of what it will be like to work here as you are allocated a supervisor in a practice area and you are given ‘real work’ to do by lawyers. We ask you before you start the scheme whether you have an interest in particular practice areas and then try to place you in those areas. You can spend time in corporate & securities, financial services, employment, finance and real estate, intellectual property or dispute resolution.
Exactly what you will do will depend on which practice area(s) you sit in but it will probably include research, drafting and attending meetings. You will also attend training and briefing sessions.
Sports and social events are an important part of the summer vacation scheme as they enable you to get to know each other and our people better. We organise social events for you including drinks events and dinners.
The Spring scheme will take place from 26 June - 7 July 2017. We offer places on our Spring scheme primarily to all final year undergraduates (both law and non-law), all graduates and post-graduates.
The first step to securing a place on one of our vacation schemes is to complete the online application form. The deadline for all applications for the Spring scheme is 31 December 2016 and the deadline for all applications for the Summer scheme is 31 January 2017.
