Summer Vacation Scheme

Our Vacation Schemes aim to give students who are interested in a career as a commercial solicitor a realistic taste of what it’s like working for a global law firm. We think that it’s really important that your experience with us mirrors the reality of the role of a Trainee and life at the firm. So we’ll involve you in live transactions, deals and cases and, where possible, we’ll encourage you to attend internal, departmental and client meetings as well as court hearings.

The Summer Vacation Scheme is three weeks long and is aimed at penultimate year law and non-law students, as well as those in the second year of a four year course.

We’ll give you experience in two different seats, and because transactional work is at the heart of what we do, we’ll encourage you to spend one of those seats in a Corporate or Banking role. We won’t expect you to know everything, so we’ll provide training sessions to help familiarise you with some of our typical transactions, and to help you develop a range of key skills that you’ll need as a Trainee. You’ll also take part in a client pitch exercise which is a great opportunity to work closely with other people on the Vacation Scheme.

If you think we’re the right fit for you, we’d love you to come and meet us at one of the many campus events we attend over the year.
