Type of opportunity:
The CMS Academy is CMS’s next generation vacation scheme starting with innovative leadership development training in London. This comprises panel discussions with clients, case studies, work simulation exercises and client visits amongst other things. It is an intense but fully rewarding week where you will experience first-hand the commitment from the firm to make you the best lawyer for the future.
The second part of the programme includes an internship within one of our UK offices. Participants gain real experience in a commercial environment and develop skills needed to succeed as a trainee solicitor at a future facing law firm. 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.
Each student is paid £375 to attend the programme for one week.
After completing the programme, successful candidates will be offered a Training Contract.
