Our vacation schemes are open to penultimate year law students, final year students of any degree discipline, graduates and those considering a change in career.

During the vacation scheme you will have the opportunity to visit two departments of your choice over a two-week period.

Under the guidance of your supervisor, you will have the chance to attend court visits or client meetings as well as skills sessions run by trainees and solicitors. In addition to this, there are many social and sports events throughout the placement that offer a real insight into life as a trainee solicitor. Please note that we will follow government guidelines regarding social distancing and we will make the decision nearer the time to run the schemes virtually if it is advised to do so.

Vacation schemes are part of the recruitment process for trainee solicitors so a keen interest in a career in commercial law is essential.

All participants are offered a training contract interview at the end.
