Spring / Summer Vacation Scheme 2018

Burges Salmon is the independent UK law firm with a unique model and culture. Our main departments include Corporate & Financial Institutions, Dispute Resolution, Projects, Real Estate and Private Client. 

Our people are our greatest asset. That’s why we recruit ambitious and forward-thinking individuals. We look for a minimum 2.1 degree and the relevant interpersonal skills to success as a commercial solicitor.

During the vacation scheme you will have the opportunity to visit two departments of your choice over a two-week period. The emphasis is on 'real work' and, under the guidance of your supervisor, you will have the chance to attend court visits or client meetings as well as skills sessions run by trainees and solicitors. In addition to this, there are many social and sports events throughout the placement that offer a real insight into life as a trainee solicitor. 

All our vacation schemes are open to penultimate and final year law students, final year non-law students, graduates and those considering a change in career. 

Vacation schemes are part of the recruitment process for trainee solicitors to commence training contracts in 2020 so a keen interest in a career in commercial law is essential. 

All participants are offered a training contract interview at the end.

Please note that we recruit the majority of our future trainees from our vacation scheme programme.

Allowance: £250 per week.
