Our vacation scheme 

We recruit our future trainee solicitors from our spring and summer vacation schemes only. In 2021, we will have up to 15 people in total on our spring and summer vacation schemes.

You will sit in two different teams, with both a partner and an associate and gain hands-on experience, giving you the opportunity to undertake real, meaningful work and showcase your potential.

We hope that by the end of the two weeks, you will have met most of our people at our vacation scheme-specific workshops, seminars and social events. You will be supported throughout your time with us, both by a partner mentor, an associate buddy and our graduate recruitment team. 

How to apply

From autumn 2020, we are recruiting trainee solicitors for the first time and we are looking for those who can start their training contract in September 2021, 2022 or 2023.

The application deadline is 31 January 2021 and we recruit on a rolling basis.  Successful applications will be invited to video interview and, if successful at this stage, will be invited to a half-day assessment centre, consisting of a written exercise and an interview.
