Getting Into The Law With George Green LLP  

The leading law firm George Green has once again launched its Summer undergraduate student Vacation Placement scheme which enables law students to spend time with the firm. The programme involves the various departments hosting a number of students giving them a flavour of a wide range of practice areas including Corporate, Commercial Property and Dispute Resolution.

Each year George Green takes on a number of trainee solicitors and the idea of the Vacation Placement scheme is to give those aspiring to become trainees at the firm a chance to have a preview of what training at the firm will involve.

In addition George Green is now inviting applications for training contracts starting in September 2021 with the application process closing on the 31st July 2019. Further details can be found on its web site at

Applications for the firm’s 2021 Summer Vacation Placement scheme will open in January 2021.

David Stevenson, Chief Executive of George Green explained further “the success of our business is dependent on the quality of our lawyers and to a large part that is dependent on recruiting and training the best of the best. Vitally, however, we are keen to recruit trainees that share the type of values that we see as key in enabling us to carry out our stated mission of making a difference by helping our clients succeed.”

Stevenson continued "the firm and indeed the applicant can only learn so much from the traditional recruitment process of application and interview. Our Vacation Placement scheme enables students to have a genuine taster of what we at George Green are about whilst at the same time enabling us a much better opportunity to make the right recruitment decisions; that is right for our clients."

Alex-Jayne Lowe, Commercial Property specialist at George Green and partner responsible for graduate recruitment added “the Vacation Placement scheme is a key plank in our recruitment process and we were overwhelmed both by the number and quality of the applications we received .The law remains a popular choice of profession for young people and we are keen to offer opportunities to them to join us and develop their careers."
