Summer vacation scheme 2020

Job description

Finding the place you want to start your career is a moment you’ll always remember, and that’s exactly the kind of insight we offer on our vacation schemes. Whether you’re with us for one week or two, we pack a lot into these four schemes. You’ll do real work, for real clients. You’ll network with colleagues. You’ll present group projects on legal issues. It’s a lot of new ground to cover, but if you want to understand what it’s really like to work here, nothing else comes close.

There’s no progress more vital than what you’ll experience on our training contracts. Over two years – broken into four six-month seats – you’ll hit all kinds of new firsts with us, big and small. You’ll explore new areas, for instance. Each seat will take you through different sectors and practice areas, with at least one seat in each of corporate, banking and litigation. One of your seats will almost certainly be on secondment too – your first encounter with working in a new country, or maybe six months spent working in a client office. As you move from one milestone to the next, you’ll have a sizeable team at your back. A partner mentor to turn to and to learn from. A trainee buddy to teach you the ropes. And the whole trainee development team, to keep you on track from day-to-day.

Our 2020 summer vacation schemes are for penultimate-year law and non-law undergraduates. The schemes will run on 8-19 June 2020 and 29 June-10 July 2020.

Length of the programme: Two weeks.

What we are looking for

You’ll have an enquiring mind, strong interpersonal skills, and the motivation to make constant progress.

You’ll be interested in business too, and keen to build relationships within a firm that’ll help you make progress with purpose.

Qualifications

An impeccable academic record and intellectual rigour are prerequisites. We expect successful candidates to have at least AAB at A-level (or equivalent) and be on track for a 2:1 (or equivalent).
