Description of the firm 

When you choose Hogan Lovells, you're not just choosing a career in law. You're choosing a career in law with a more progressive international outlook, a clearer focus on innovation and a sharper commercial edge. You're choosing a team with a healthy contempt for boundaries and conventions. One that likes to work in a more collaborative and joined-up way, shaping the business landscape, overcoming unforeseen challenges and creating new opportunities for its clients.  In short, when you choose a career with Hogan Lovells, you're choosing to be a Global Game-changer.

Types of work 

Something else that makes us stand out as a firm – aside from the unified way we work across the globe – is our exceptional range of practice areas. For the people who work with us, this breadth presents an incredible variety of disciplines to explore, from Corporate to Finance to Government Regulatory, and from Intellectual Property to Litigation, Arbitration and Employment law. It's inspiring stuff. Especially when you realise that, within these specialisms, our expertise – and the clients we work with – extend to virtually every industry sector.

Vacation schemes 

Running for two to three weeks at a time in the summer and winter, our vacation schemes can be the first step towards a successful future in law. Each one is carefully tailored to different stages in your career planning, but there are certain core elements that are common to them all.

Working alongside partners, associates and trainees, you’ll get to support real, live client work in our key practice areas. You’ll draft documents, go to meetings, do legal research and, where possible, attend court. It’s hands-on learning that’s reinforced by workshops, discussions, case studies, work shadowing, social events and more. As an experience, it’s invaluable.

Who we are looking for 

Our vacation schemes are open to penultimate-year students, final-year students and graduates from all degree disciplines. You should have (or expect to achieve) a good 2:1 or above. But what matters more is that you demonstrate the qualities we look for in everyone at Hogan Lovells: the ability to adapt to new surroundings, the resilience to deliver challenging work to tight deadlines and the ambition to influence change across the board. Above all, you must be confident in your ability to work well with others and build lasting relationships with colleagues and clients alike. 

When and how to apply

The application window for our summer vacation schemes (open to all penultimate and final year students, as well as graduates) is open from 17 September 2018 until 6 January 2019.

For the winter scheme (specifically for all final year students and graduates), applications open 17 September 2018 and close 31 October 2018.
