As the days get shorter and the nights get colder, it’s time to start thinking about winter vacation schemes. Whether you’re a law student or non-law student, firms’ winter vacation schemes are a great chance for you to gain insights into life as a lawyer at particular firms and their working culture. With deadlines fast approaching, it’s time to get your applications underway.

You can head to our interviews with previous vacation schemers – Vacation Scheme Insiders – to see what a vacation scheme entails at various firms.

The application window for winter vacation schemes doesn’t tend to be as long as for spring and summer schemes, so it’s crucial that you’re smart in your approach. Make the most of the time you have to make the applications and ensure you’re applying for firms you have a genuine interest in.

You can find a list of all vacation scheme deadlines on the specific Vacation scheme deadlines page; however, here’s a list of the firms currently accepting applications for winter programmes.
