South West +3

The CMS Academy is our next generation vacation scheme and the main route to a training contract at CMS. The innovative three-week* programme is split into two parts. Week one is the Business of Law week in our London office, followed by a two-week internship in the CMS office of your choice. There will be a range of activities and events for you to get involved with, which will prepare you for a career in law. You’ll have the opportunity to meet with clients, network with lawyers at all levels, work on projects and debate with thought leaders in the legal and industry sectors.  

A supervisor and trainee buddy will be your main point of contact and will provide high quality work which will give you an accurate insight into the work of a trainee solicitor.

After completing the programme, successful candidates will be offered a training contract.

Each student is paid £450 per week to attend the programme.

* Due to COVID restrictions, our CMS Academy programme may be conducted entirely virtually.
