We run a one-week winter vacation scheme and two-week vacation schemes in spring and summer each year.

The Scheme
Students will spend time in at least two different departments and will share an office with a qualified lawyer. You will experience the day-to-day life of a lawyer at the firm and will have the opportunity to undertake real work rather than just observing or shadowing. This practical experience will be supplemented by a programme of presentations and workshops that will ensure you get to know as much about the firm as you possibly can during the placement. 

There will also be some organised social events to help you get to know our current trainees. 

Students will receive £350 per week. 

Application and selection
Applications for the 2017/18 vacation schemes are closed. Applications for the 2018/2019 vacation schemes open on 1 October 2018. If you have any questions, please emai graduaterecruitment@sidley.com.
