Vacation scheme deadlines

Don’t miss vacation scheme deadlines this winter

Law vacation placement deadlines are now scattered between October and February to keep you on your toes. We’ve put together a list of the need-to-know deadlines along with links to each law firm's information.
Most law firms offer these structured work experience programmes to second- or final-year law and non-law students, and tend to pay a subsidy of £250–£500 per week.

Vacation schemes are a significant (and sometimes essential) part of the recruitment process for most large law firms. The best way to obtain inside knowledge about a firm's culture and the sort of legal work it does is to spend between one and three weeks on its vacation scheme (also known as a vacation placement but rarely, in this sector, as an internship).
