Valuable insight; invaluable experience
As a placement student you will have the opportunity to get involved in the work of the practice you are sitting in, together with project work across several practices.
Our next vacation schemes will take place in April (3rd - 6th & 17th - 20th) and June (26th - 29th) 2023. For a week each and we will be accepting applications for places from 1 December 2022 - 31 January 2023. These are open to second year law undergraduates, third year non-law graduates and all postgraduates. We offer 15 places on each week.
During the course of the week, there are introductions to each practice, and there is an opportunity to meet a cross section of people to enable you to sample our friendly and open culture which sets us apart from other firms.
The vacation placement is designed to give you a good idea of what it might be like to work here. The placement also gives us a chance to get to know you - and at the end of it all placement students take part in our interview process for a training contract.
You will have the opportunity to:
• Learn about our core practice areas
• Work with a buddy
• Shadow our lawyers in their day to day working activities
• Attend social events
• Be involved in client work and meetings
• Work on case studies and receive feedback
• Interview for a training contract
From 2023 we are doubling our trainee intake from five to 10 a year. We are therefore now accepting applications for training contracts to start in 2023, 2024 and 2025. To help secure a training contract with us please apply for a place on one of our vacation schemes where you will also be offered an interview for a training contract.
