Vacation scheme deadlines


Deadlines for vac schemes in 2018


The deadlines to apply for firms' spring and summer 2018 vac schemes have now passed. We will publish deadlines for 2018/19 winter vac schemes and 2019 spring and summer vac schemes as soon as they are known.

Most firms are currently accepting training contract applications. Click here for 2018 law firm training contract application deadlines.

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.
