Dechert LLP runs two Vacation Schemes throughout the year. Our two week vacation schemes are designed to give you an idea of what it will be like to work here as you are allocated a supervisor in a practice group and you are given ‘real work’ to do by lawyers. We ask you before you start the scheme whether you have an interest in particular practice groups and then try to place you in those groups. Exactly what you will do will depend on which practice group you sit in but it will probably include research, drafting and attending meetings. You will also attend training sessions, on a range of topics, such as legal writing and negotiation. Sports and social events are an important part of the vacation schemes as they enable you to get to know each other and our people better. We organise team-building and social events for you including drinks events and dinners to help you develop your networking skills.
If you would like to apply for a place on one of our Vacation Schemes in 2017, please visit our website for further details.
