Vacation Schemes

Deciding which law firm is right for you is not always easy. Our vacation scheme will help you to feel fully informed and experience our culture for yourself.

Our Vacation Scheme provides a chance to spend time with us and see exactly what we do on a daily basis.

You’ll spend 2 weeks in either our London or Cheltenham office, or 1 week in our Guildford office depending on which vacation scheme you apply for. Each week is spent in a different practice area where you will carry out real fee earning work that could include attending client meetings and going to court.

Support is always close at hand, with a current trainee as mentor and an associate as sponsor for each placement. You’ll also meet a variety people, either at organised social events or as part of your day to day interactions, and this will give you a real insight into the culture of the firm.

During your time with us you’ll be automatically considered for a Training Contract and will take part in an assessment centre which will be reviewed along with your performance during the Vacation Scheme.
