Deadlines for vac schemes in 2018

 

Below is a list of deadlines for vacations schemes in spring and summer 2018. Most firms are now accepting 2018 vac scheme applications – where the window is not yet open we have listed opening dates.

Some firms look at applications as soon as they come in, so you should apply as soon as possible after the application window opens – firms which take this approach include Simmons & Simmons and Jones Day.

The information below was provided to us directly by law firms in summer 2017. Deadlines do occasionally change at the last minute and while we endeavour to keep our information as up to date as possible, please check firms' websites to be absolutely certain of deadline dates.
