Vacation Scheme Deadlines

As good bargains go, vacation schemes stand out as amazing 3-for-1 deals: for just a few weeks of your time, you get to improve your resume, brush up your legal skills and, best of all, you can see first-hand what life’s truly like at your favourite law firm before committing to the full training contract experience.

Because we know a number of you are set on giving vacation schemes a try, we’ve put together a collection of relevant application deadlines to help you along.
