London Vacation Scheme

We run a one-week winter vacation scheme and two-week vacation schemes in spring and summer each year.

The Scheme

Students will spend time in at least two different departments and will share an office with a qualified lawyer. You will experience the day-to-day life of a lawyer at the firm and will have the opportunity to undertake real work rather than just observing or shadowing. This practical experience will be supplemented by a programme of presentations and workshops that will ensure you get to know as much about the firm as you possibly can during the placement.

There will also be some organised social events to help you get to know our current trainees.


Students will receive £500 per week.

Application and selection

Applications for the 2019/2020 vacation schemes open on 1 October 2019, the deadline for the winter scheme is 4 November 2019 and the deadline for spring/summer is 31 January 2020.
