Summer vacation schemes

Our summer vacation schemes are a good way of finding out what life really is like as a trainee at our firm.

We offer 34 places across our London, Birmingham, Exeter and Manchester offices each year. During your time with us, you will be involved in real work - drafting, undertaking research, attending meetings and interacting with a range of people across the firm. You will be teamed with a trainee mentor who will introduce you to each department and be on hand to offer you all the guidance you need. And you will be allocated a supervisor to offer you advice on the work that you will undertake.

We pay every candidate attending our summer vacation schemes. This is currently £275 per week in London and £225 per week in Birmingham, Exeter and Manchester. 

If you are interested in applying for one of our summer vacation scheme places, our comprehensive online application form can be found here. Please note that we do not consider any other form of submission (i.e. CV and covering letter) other than our online form.

The application process for our summer vacation schemes in 2018 will open in early October, and our programme (if you are successful) will take place from Monday 18 June 2018 to Friday 13 July 2018.

Winter open day

We also operate a winter open day every January. During the course of the day, attendees participate in a number of presentations on topics ranging from life as a trainee at the firm to taking a seat in the Middle East. We aim to give you a comprehensive understanding of who we are, what we do, and how we do it. As well as presentations, there will be lunch with members of our Trainee Solicitors' Committee and a team-building activity aimed at enhancing your existing skills-set.  

If you are interested in applying for a place on our winter open day, you will need to complete our online application form. This will be available as of early October and the deadline for applications is 1 December 2017. The winter open day will take place in January 2018.
