Law Summer Vacation Schemes

Job description

A diverse client base allows us to advise on more than just the law. We're a firm that encourages new ideas and different ways of doing things. Our experts play an essential role in advising clients on business growth and protection, while introducing them to new people, new markets and fresh perspectives that will help their businesses stand out and flourish.

Collaboration is key to our success. We recruit a wide range of students including those who haven't studied Law.

You’ll spend two weeks in two different practice areas gaining first-hand experience under the supervision of associates and partners.

  • Length of the programme: two weeks.

What we are looking for

Naturally, we expect you to be committed to a career in law, with a genuine passion to learn. Our people love what they do and want to contribute new ideas. They are team players who value and respect individuality, and the benefit of working in an inclusive environment. You should be confident, with good communication skills and the ability to build strong relationships. You’ll have the energy, ambition and creativity to take responsibility, challenge and make a difference.
