Summer Vacation Scheme

Our Summer Vacation Scheme gives exceptional penultimate-year students the chance to experience life at Clifford Chance and to interview for a Training Contract. On this two-week scheme, you’ll have the chance to gain unparalleled experience of the world of commercial law during seats in two practice areas. Not only will you do real work with experienced lawyers of all levels; you’ll also have the guidance and support of a supervising lawyer and a trainee ‘buddy’. If you’re preparing for a career in law, irrespective of your degree discipline, this is the perfect way to secure a Training Contract before you graduate.  

While you’re here, you’ll have full access to our facilities, including our swimming pool, fitness centre and restaurant. Through both your work  and a number of bespoke social events, you’ll also have ample opportunities to network with a variety of representatives from the Clifford Chance community. You’ll even receive a £400 per week salary for your hard work. If you need adjustments made, or financial assistance with either travel or accommodation, please get in touch with our Graduate Recruitment Team. Details can be found on our graduate website.
