After an induction you'll be treated just like a trainee, because we want you to take away a vivid picture of what we're like. So, you'll be involved in real deals, sit with a principal, work hard and enjoy an active social life. You'll also attend professional development sessions. These offer a broader understanding of our global business strategy and practice areas, and help you to develop those essential skills, like negotiation and pitching.
More informally, you'll have the ear of experienced lawyers and trainees. A trainee 'buddy' in each department is on hand to integrate you into the team, as well as an associate principal. This reflects the support you can look forward to if you join us as a trainee. You'll also get to know us, and other vacation scheme students, through our social events (often a highlight!).
After attending the vacation scheme, we'll automatically offer you a final interview for a Training Contract with a partner or managing associate. The selection process is tough because we want you to succeed in your Training Contract application.
Our Winter Vacation Scheme is open now.
Applications are welcomed from penultimate and final-year undergraduates, graduates, and postgraduates.
