Live Your Ambition

Sign up for a Vacation Scheme and you’ll achieve great things while you're with us. But we’re just as interested in helping you to achieve your long-term career ambitions.

Successfully navigate our selection process and you’ll have the same responsibility and support that our Trainees are entitled to. Our Vacation Scheme visitors work on real projects, guided by experienced lawyers who will help you to grow. A Trainee “buddy” and a senior colleague will help you settle in, while professional development training will give you deeper insight into our global business, helping you to develop skills like negotiating and pitching to clients. More informally, you’ll get to know people through social events (often a highlight). And at the end of the Scheme, you’ll be offered an interview for a Training Contract: because we want the very best lawyers to live their ambition – with us.

Our four-week Summer Vacation Scheme is open to penultimate-year students studying law and non-law subjects at UK and Irish universities.

Our two-week Winter Vacation Scheme is open to final-year students, graduates and postgraduates studying law and non-law subjects.

Our two-week Spring Vacation Scheme is open to final-year students, graduates and postgraduates studying law and non-law subjects.

We pay our Vacation Scheme students £400 per week.
