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 the Spring and the Summer. The Spring scheme for Birmingham and London will take place virtually during the week of 12 April 2021.

Dates for the Summer schemes will be confirmed as soon as possible and we hope to run these in the office.


Birmingham and London: Week Commencing 12 April 2021


London: TBC

Birmingham: TBC

We are recruiting for our 2023 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.

The Application Process

Applications for 2021 vacation schemes are closed. Applications for our 2022 vacation schemes will open in the Autumn. In the meantime read about our application process to know what to expect.
