Vacation Scheme

Our Vacation Scheme is a great way to experience 'real work'

In 2021 we will be running two vacation schemes between June and July. As a vacation scheme student, you are a potential trainee and are therefore treated as such. You will sit with either a partner or a solicitor and you will experience 'real work' of the type that a trainee would undertake.

Other activities will include attending lunchtime seminars, visits to the courts and departmental presentations. Our aim is to offer vacation scheme students a real insight into what it would be like working as a trainee at the firm.
