Vacation Scheme

Each year we offer up to six places on our week long vacation placement scheme (VPS)

The VPS is an opportunity for aspiring solicitors - who are either under graduates or graduates - to experience what it is like to work inside a reasonably sized law firm .

The week’s experience is structured and involves spending time in a number of the firm’s departments as well as undertaking various exercises

More than anything else the VPS gives participants the chance to get know us and us to get to know them - many of the participants in the VPS become trainees in the Firm.

To apply for a place on the 2024 VPS please complete the form here and email it to:

Closing date for applications is 31 March 2024

“I was pretty sure that I wanted to pursue a career as a solicitor when I applied to do the scheme. What I was not too sure about was the type of firm I wanted to join. I had a great week’s experience spending time in various departments. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. The vacation scheme certainly does what it says on the tin and I would thoroughly recommend it”.
