Type of opportunity:
Our summer schemes are a great way for students to get a ‘taster’ of the firm and decide if a career in law is for them. Each year we offer up to 10 summer placements on each of our two-week programmes. Participants sit with a senior lawyer and will be given as much hands-on experience as possible. Students will spend each of their two weeks in a different practice area and will get involved in a research project, participate in group activities and attend a series of presentations. We also organise a number of social events so that students can have some fun and get to know us.
Our vacation schemes are open to candidates from any degree discipline. Law students can apply in their penultimate year (and above), whilst students from all other disciplines can apply in their final year of study (and beyond). We are also open to GDL and LPC students, as well as candidates who are further along their career path. Candidates studying for the two-year senior status LLB can apply in their first year, however they must provide a detailed breakdown of all modules from their previous undergraduate degree which must meet our minimum academic requirements.
