There is no better way to experience BLP than to join us on one of our vacation schemes.
You will get to choose the departments you sit in and will be assigned a trainee 'buddy' who you will shadow. You will very much be considered 'part of the team' and will be involved in every aspect of the department from client meetings to court runs and work with senior lawyers. This not only helps you get a feel for the firm, but also helps develop your understanding of legal issues.
Apart from actually doing real client work, you will also attend a series of partner-led talks and workshops, to help build up your knowledge about BLP and also improve your skill set.
But it won't all be work! You will have lots of opportunities to network with firm members in social settings. We arrange a lunch with partners, various social events with trainees, and if there are any firmwide events, you will be invited to attend.
The dates for the Summer vacation scheme are:
