Vacation schemes

So you want to be a City lawyer? Taking part in one of our three annual vacation schemes is the best possible way to experience what our lawyers do every day. Try out real client work and see if our Firm is the right fit for you.

We recruit the majority of our London trainees (on average 80 percent) from our vacation schemes, with 25 participants in each intake. There’s no limit on how many training contracts we offer per scheme, so you won’t be in competition with your peers. 

Wherever your career takes you, we guarantee that you’ll build skills and experience that will last:

  • Do real client work: draft memorandums; write client alerts; research areas of the law; attend meetings or court hearings, for example
  • Learn about different practice areas and deepen your knowledge of the law
  • ‘Ask Me Anything’ Q&A session with partners and associates
  • Attend social events, including supervisor and buddy lunches, and fun activities such as sushi making
  • Build your networks, both professionally and personally
  • Receive feedback and advice on your work and performance
  • As part of your training contract interview, you’ll have the opportunity to prepare a presentation on a commercial topic

Rhona Luithle

My supervisor and trainee buddy were fantastic! They were friendly, welcoming and gave me some really interesting work. What struck me is how interested everyone was in me—they wanted to get to know me as well as answering all my questions.

Sahal Suleman

It was a true insight into the work that commercial lawyers actually do. The office was incredibly diverse—you can hear a dozen different languages just walking down the halls. Most of all, I found everyone approachable and open to all my questions.
