Vacation Schemes

It’s the best form of legal work experience you can get, half the battle to getting a training contract, and your chance to spend a week inside of a top law firm… behold the vacation scheme. The opportunities to develop your legal skill-set and network with professionals are endless - and you’ll get paid a competitive salary while you do it.

Vacation schemes are open to university students only - however, if you’re not studying law, you’re still eligible to apply. All firms are seeking the highest calibre when it comes to grades, experience and skill set. It’s fair to say that the stakes are high! You'll need to send off an application form, attend at least one interview, and perhaps even an assessment centre, but it will all be worth it.

Check out our range of live vacation scheme opportunities now and get applying. Best of luck!
