Vacation schemes for law students generally take place in spring or summer and are an excellent way of gaining valuable work experience. Not only that but it’s becoming more and more common for firms offer training contracts to those who undertook a vacation placement with them.
Be aware that the deadline for most of these schemes in January 31st 2013 so if you’re planning on making applications you need to start researching and thinking about this now. The application forms are pretty tough and need careful consideration (and you may want to check in with me that you’re writing these along the right lines) so don’t leave it until the last minute.
