Vacation Scheme

Choosing where to start your career matters.

Our vacation schemes are an opportunity to get a taster of the firm, before deciding whether a career in law at Covington is for you.

The Covington experience

We offer up to 20 placements on our two-week programmes. You will be given the opportunity to sit with a senior lawyer, undertake real, hands on work and research, and experience two different practice areas. You will also undertake a research project in a third practice area to allow you to experience as much of Covington as possible. We will get you involved in a group activity and we will arrange a series of presentations so you can understand what we are all about.

It’s not all work though, we also arrange a number of social activities which allow you to network with people from across the firm, and really get to know us.

Who is eligible?

Our vacation schemes are open to candidates from any degree discipline.

Law students can apply in their penultimate year (and above), whilst students from all other disciplines can apply in their final year of study (and beyond). GDL and LPC students as well as candidates who are further along their career path are also eligible.

Candidates studying for the two-year senior status LLB can apply in their first year, however they must provide a detailed breakdown of all modules from their previous undergraduate degree which must meet our minimum academic requirements.
