Running for two to three weeks at a time in the summer and winter, our vacation schemes can be the first step towards a successful future in law. Each one is carefully tailored to different stages in your career planning, but there are certain core elements that are common to them all.
Working alongside partners, associates and trainees, you’ll get to support real, live client work in our key practice areas. You’ll draft documents, go to meetings, do legal research and, where possible, attend court. It’s hands-on learning that’s reinforced by workshops, discussions, case studies, work shadowing, social events and more. As an experience, it’s invaluable.
Our vacation schemes are open to penultimate-year students, final-year students and graduates from all degree disciplines. You should have (or expect to achieve) a good 2:1 or above. But what matters more is that you demonstrate the qualities we look for in everyone at Hogan Lovells: the ability to adapt to new surroundings, the resilience to deliver challenging work to tight deadlines and the ambition to influence change across the board. Above all, you must be confident in your ability to work well with others and build lasting relationships with colleagues and clients alike.
The application window for our summer vacation schemes (open to all penultimate and final year students, as well as graduates) is open from 17 September 2018 until 6 January 2019.
For the winter scheme (specifically for all final year students and graduates), applications open 17 September 2018 and close 31 October 2018.
