Spring Vacation Scheme: Two Weeks

To kickstart your career, apply to our Spring Vacation Scheme. The Scheme offers a taste of life in commercial law at a global firm. It puts you in the best possible position to secure a Training Contract here.

Applications are welcomed from penultimate and final-year undergraduates, graduates, and postgraduates. And we welcome both students of Law and non-Law subjects.

After an induction, you'll be treated just like a Trainee, because we want you to take away a vivid picture of what we're like. So you'll be involved in real deals, sit with a Principal, work hard and enjoy an active social life. You'll also attend professional development sessions. These offer a broader understanding of our global business strategy and practice areas, and help you to develop those essential skills, like negotiation and pitching.

More informally, you'll have the ear of experienced lawyers. A Trainee ‘buddy’ in each department, is on hand to integrate you into the team, as well as an Associate Principal. This reflects the support you can look forward to if you join us as a Trainee. You'll also get to know us, and other Vacation Scheme students, through our social events (often a highlight!).

After attending the Vacation Scheme, we'll automatically offer you a final interview for our Training Contract with one of our Partners. The selection process is tough, because our Vacation Schemes are there to help prepare you, and we want you to be successful in your Training Contract application. And we'll also pay you £400 per week while you're with us.

Remember to mention TARGETjobs when contacting employers!
