Our London office offers 48 vacation places each year (12 in winter, 12 in spring and 12 in each of two summer schemes). The schemes aim to provide potential trainee applicants with a practical insight into life as a Cleary lawyer, and our objective throughout is to involve participants directly in client work. In addition to this hands-on experience, the scheme incorporates a series of practice overview sessions designed to ensure exposure to the full range of work that we undertake in London. There are also a number of organised social events so that participants can get to know the current partners, associates and trainees of the firm outside the office. We actively encourage all candidates who are considering applying for a trainee solicitor position with the firm to undertake a vacation placement with us. Applications for winter vacation placements should be received by 4 November. The deadline for spring and summer vacation scheme applications is 28 January. We fund the LPC for all our future trainee solicitors. For non-law graduates, we also fund the GDL. A maintenance grant of £8,000 is paid for each year of professional study.
