Spring Vacation Scheme

Our Vacation Schemes give students who are interested in a career as a commercial solicitor a realistic taste of what it’s like working for a global law firm. We think that it’s really important that your experience with us mirrors the reality of the role of a Trainee and life at the firm. So we’ll involve you in live transactions, deals and cases and, where possible, we’ll encourage you to attend internal, departmental and client meetings as well as court hearings.

The Spring Vacation Scheme is two weeks long and is aimed at Final Year students and graduates with a law or non-law degree.

We’ll give you experience in two different seats, and because transactional work is at the heart of what we do, we’ll encourage you to spend one of those seats in a Corporate or Banking role. We won’t expect you to know everything, so we’ll provide training sessions to help familiarise you with some of our typical transactions, and to help you develop a range of key skills that you’ll need as a Trainee. You’ll also take part in a client pitch exercise which is a great opportunity to work closely with other people on the Vacation Scheme.

If you think we’re the right fit for you, we’d love you to come and meet us at one of the many campus events we attend over the year.

“The highlight of the Vacation Scheme was just feeling like you were important and that you were adding value. I did get given lots of pieces of work from lots of different people, so that did make me feel like I was able to work here and gave me confidence.”
