Summer Vacation Scheme (London)

Simmons & Simmons is a leading international law firm with fully integrated teams working throughout Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Our vision is to continue to be a leading global law firm through our sector focus, which is underpinned by our ambition to provide our clients with high quality advice and deliver value through new ways of working.

Our paid internship schemes are one of the primary means of selecting candidates for a career with us. Your placement in our London or Bristol offices will give you a first-hand experience of a busy and dynamic international law firm, with exposure to the deals and transactions we work on.
We’re looking for trainees who have great intellectual abilities, but who can also show that they have initiative and drive. So while we’re interested in your academic successes, we also want to see your potential. That’s why our assessment process focuses on the raw skills you have now, not just on what you have achieved.

Summer vacation scheme (London): two week scheme open to penultimate year law and non-law students, final year students and graduates. Applications open 15 October 2016. The dates for the scheme will be either 19 June - 30 June or 03 July - 14 July 2017. You’ll receive £300 at the end of each week of your placement.

You'll spend time in two departments where you will be supervised by one of our partners or associates and will get involved in real life trainee work from day one. We'll also match you up with one of our current trainees in each group to help you settle in quickly. Throughout the scheme we will run a full programme of information events, skills sessions and social events so you will be sure to be busy.
Please note that we fill all of our roles on a first come first served basis, we therefore advise you to apply as soon as possible and put your very best into it.
