Here's the perfect way

We’re grateful for your interest in our firm. Perhaps you’d like to get to know us better? If so, one of our vacation schemes is the perfect way to introduce yourself and find out more about our work.

What you do

You get involved in real work and interact with our clients. But we don’t throw you in at the deep end. We support all our people, including you.

From the start, one of our trainees will help you settle in and find your way around. One of our qualified lawyers becomes your mentor. They will give you honest yet constructive feedback on your how you're doing.

When and where

The vacation schemes take place in London and Birmingham, lasting one week in the spring or two weeks in the summer. The dates for 2020 are:


Birmingham: 30/03/2020 - 03/04/2020

London: 20/04/2020 – 24/04/2020


London: 22/06/2020 – 03/07/2020

Birmingham: 29/06/2020 – 10/07/2020

We are recruiting for our 2022 training contracts via our vacation scheme only, for both locations.

And why

On a vacation scheme, you meet some of the people who made us the outstanding international law firm we are, and who still make us tick. And there’s time for socialising with other people too. For instance, you get to chat to our trainees and quiz them on life and work with us.

All in all, it’s a great chance to see if we're right for each other.


Applications for 2021 vacation schemes will open in September. In the meantime, read our tips on how to make your application the best it can be.
