Our Vacation Schemes

Friday, 20 September 2019

To give you a taste of life at Travers Smith, we run two week vacation schemes - one in December and three during the summer. 

As of 1 October 2018, we will be recruiting for our September 2021/March 2022 intake and welcome applications from law and non-law students.

The vacation schemes are a chance for us to get to know each other, so working lunches, workshops and after work events will be as important as the legal work you’ll be doing. You’ll also meet our current trainees, who will give you an honest account of what it’s like to practise law and what we’re like as a firm.

During the fortnight, you’ll work in two different departments and share an office with partners, associates and trainees. Typical tasks will include drafting letters or emails, attending meetings with clients and carrying out research with the help of our Research Centre. We extend our internal seminar programme to include a number of talks, case studies and negotiating exercises specifically for students to give an authentic taste of a City lawyer’s work.

The timetable also includes a City tour, plenty of social activities including softball and the option to be involved in sporting activities such as mixed hockey, netball and football.

Students will be paid £450 per week.
