The majority of Skadden’s training contracts in our London office are offered to our vacation scheme students. Our vacation scheme programme provides students with a first-hand experience of working on “real-life” global transactions with a diverse client base. It also provides insight into the working culture and atmosphere of Skadden. Each student is paired with an associate supervisor and trainee liaison who are tasked with identifying substantive work assignments.

Program Overview

Our vacation scheme students are offered the option to practice in a single area and, in most cases, we are able to accommodate this. However, most vacation-scheme students spend their time in two different practice areas, allowing for greater exposure to our work. Students participate in a series of training workshops and insight sessions focused on current matters, which aids their professional development and provides a first-hand perspective from Skadden lawyers on the broad range of matters we handle.

The application window opens on Friday, 6 October 2017. The deadline for applications is 12 January 2018.
