Summer Vacation Scheme

In 2018, Gibson Dunn will host one three-week summer vacation scheme for students interested in pursuing a career with the firm. The scheme is intended for law students in their penultimate year of study, students of other disciplines in their final year, recent graduates (in any discipline), and those already taking a GDL or LPC course.

The scheme is designed to give participants a true experience of life at Gibson Dunn and, more generally, the day-to-day career of a lawyer at a top international firm. Scheme participants have the opportunity to take part in seminars and workshops, as well as meaningful work on the firm's high profile matters. There are also many opportunities to mix socially with firm lawyers and staff.

Gibson Dunn strongly encourages candidates interested in a training contract to apply for a place on our summer vacation scheme, rather than directly for a training contract. To date, over 90% of our trainees have been recruited from our previous summer vacation schemes.

We currently expect to offer up to 20 places on our summer vacation scheme in 2018. Early application is advised as places will be allocated on a rolling basis.
