Summer Vacation Scheme

An award-winning disputes team. World-class corporate practice. Top-tier sector specialists. At Herbert Smith Freehills, you’ll be a part of everything. We’re one of the world's leading law firms, working with some of the biggest international organisations, on some of their most ambitious projects. Join us on a vacation scheme and experience it for yourself. 

Our vacation schemes are a great introduction to life at Herbert Smith Freehills. Ensuring you learn from the best, our schemes place you side-by-side with a partner or associate, taking on real work for real clients. You’ll be involved in workshops and presentations giving you a unique chance to explore the depth and breadth of our practice areas. You’ll also work as part of a team on a project related to our pro bono and citizenship work.

We invite each vacation scheme student to a range of formal and informal social events. These give you the opportunity to network with vacation scheme students, partners, associates and trainees. Because we’re a global firm, you can apply for a placement in our global offices – such as Singapore, Paris, Madrid and Tokyo – if you secure a spot on our London vacation scheme. 
You don’t need to study law to apply. In fact, we take on students and graduates from a whole range of academic backgrounds. The only thing we’re looking for is exceptional people with the desire and ability to become truly brilliant lawyers. 

Applications for our summer vacation scheme are open to all graduates and students in their final and penultimate year of university from 18 September – 29 December 2017. 

To apply, you’ll need to complete our online application form and online verbal reasoning test. If you meet our requirements, we’ll invite you to an interview at our offices.
