Vacation Scheme

Let’s talk vacation schemes.

Embark on a vacation scheme with one of the world’s largest law firms. We have offices in the Americas, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. Completing a vacation scheme is the best way to get to know our firm and decide if it’s right for you. They’re a great opportunity for you to get a taste of our culture, meet our partners, learn from our associates and network with our trainees. The breadth of experience you gain will help you to decide the areas of law that you might like to specialise in.

We run three, two-week vacation schemes each year: two are held in the summer and there is one in the Spring. All the schemes are based in our London office and applications are welcome from both law and non-law undergraduates and graduates.

During your two weeks, you’ll experience our open and inclusive culture while working within our close-knit teams. The programme includes the opportunity to sit in two departments, plus the chance to attend presentations and workshops covering our practice areas for a real insight into the firm.

There will also be plenty of social activities organised, including a day at our Paris office. Plus, you’ll have an allocated supervisor and trainee buddy to support you throughout your time with us. What kind of person are we looking for? Well, to succeed, you’ll need to demonstrate a drive for results, have good verbal and written communication skills and an ability to analyse, with good judgement and excellent interpersonal skills. Plus, we’re looking for candidates who not only have a consistently strong academic record, but a wide range of extracurricular interests and achievements. Our vacation schemes are open to undergraduates and graduates from all disciplines, who have (or expect to receive) 340 UCAS points (or equivalent), and a 2:1 degree in any discipline (or equivalent.)
