Vacation Schemes

Want to know what it’s like to work for a global law firm before you commit to joining? That’s the purpose of the Vacation Schemes we run every year. Our Spring Vacation Scheme is for law and non-law undergraduates in their final year, while our Summer Vacation Scheme is for those in their penultimate year of study (or the second or third year of a four-year course). You can also apply to either Vacation Scheme if you’re already a graduate.
