Should we be apply to them now? I've noticed some applications close in November! Eek! Does it matter what time you apply - e.g. will it count against you if you apply two days before the deadline?

Are all summer vacation schemes aimed at students in their penultimate year of law? Also, how do we know which firms to apply for?
No, many do accept applications from third years and graduates, non-law students etc, although the majority are aimed at penultimate year law students and final year non-law students. There are also a few scheme for first year law students. Here's some links to some first year schemes: http://www.blplaw.com/trainee/index.cfm/first_year_opportunities/1912 http://gradsuk.cliffordchance.com/workshops.html http://www.dlapipergraduates.co.uk/events/open_days/ http://graduates.hoganlovells.com/your_career/vacation_schemes http://www.linklatersgraduates.co.uk/schemes-and-programmes/pathfinder http://graduates.simmons-simmons.com/en/English-Graduate/Vacation-Schemes
