Work Experience and Vacation Scheme
Our work experience and vacation scheme is now on hold in light of the coronavirus pandemic.
We are very pleased to be able to offer work experience placements to students wishing to develop their skills within the legal industry.
We are pleased to be able to offer vacation placements to students in their penultimate or final year of a law degree, final year of non-law studies, or graduates. However, we will consider applications from A2 Level law students with a keen interest in pursuing a career in law.
We aim to provide five vacation placements per year, as follows;
- Winter Holiday (one student for one, two week period)
- Spring Holiday (one student for one, two week period)
- Summer Holiday (three students for three, two week periods)
Exact dates are confirmed once the universities have set their academic term dates.
Each student is placed in three different teams for a maximum of three/four days in each team during the two week period. We try to accommodate students in teams where the area of law is of interest to them, but this depends upon our business needs at the time. Each team will only take a maximum of three vacation scheme students per calendar year, and only one student at any one time. The student is assigned to the trainee supervisor within the team and given discrete tasks.
The closing date for applications for the vacation scheme is 30th April each year. Interviews will be held in May.

The empathy and reassurance provided during proceedings was of a highly personal nature.
Thanks for all your support pre-mediation and attempts to mediate. I found your service extremely professional both in terms of provision of information and the manner in which the actual mediation session was conducted.
