Start to get under the surface of what it’s like to be a trainee lawyer, with our paid vacation schemes. We offer three different schemes, two in London and one in Bristol, and each is tailored to students at different stages. You’ll learn more about our firm, so you can work out how you fit into our world, and how we fit into yours. These schemes are the most popular route to a training contract with us – many vacation schemers return as trainees.

For our London summer vacation scheme, this two-week experience will give you a deeper understanding of our world, and you’ll leave feeling part of our team. With a trainee buddy and a supervising partner or associate on hand, you’ll be a part of working life at the firm. You’ll attend social events, do vital research and drafting work, and even meet with clients. It’s a packed schedule, including experience across two different departments, but by the end, you’ll have a strong sense of whether we’re right for you – and you for us. 

Pay for the week is £375, and the schemes takes place from 22 June – 3 July and 6 July – 17 July 2020.

Open to penultimate-year and final-year students and graduates of all degree disciplines. Applications open on 15 October 2019.

Please note that we fill all of our roles on a first come first served basis, we therefore advise you to apply as soon as possible and put your very best into it.
