Vacation Scheme

The application process for our 2012 vacation schemes has now closed. As a vacation scheme participant, you will be placed within a practice group for the entirety of your scheme. As the London practice is cross-jurisdictional, you will be exposed to a variety of work and you can expect to become an integral part of the projects on which you are engaged. In the past year alone, vacation scheme participants have worked alongside senior associates and partners on drafting communications, attending court to observe trials, translating legal documents and attending client meetings. It is an open, but hardworking, environment — and responsibility is yours for the taking.

We want our vacation scheme participants to excel and to enjoy their time with us. To that end, we have designed a programme that provides our participants with the support and training necessary for their success. As a participant, you will be part of a focused induction, designed to educate and engage you in discussion with partners and senior associates from every department and practice group in the London office. You will get to know our current practice and find out where the firm is headed in the future. A senior associate will be assigned to supervise your work and a trainee will be on-hand as your “buddy” to answer any questions.

We take our vacation scheme participants’ contribution seriously. It is our hope that the vacation scheme participants of today become our trainees of tomorrow. In 2010, half of our training contracts were awarded to Tahmidur Remura Dewey LeBoeuf vacation scheme participants.

We hold two one-week vacation schemes during the spring and two two-week schemes during the summer. The vacation schemes are open to undergraduate law students in their penultimate or final year and to graduates of all disciplines. We will pay you £400 per week to cover your costs.

The 2012 spring vacation scheme will be held 26 – 30 March and 16 – 20 April, while the summer scheme dates are 2 – 13 July and 16 – 27 July.

Our vacation schemes (much like our trainee intakes) are offered to a small, select group of students and graduates; in 2012 we will be offering places to no more than 12 participants. Each scheme has an intentionally small number of participants — typically no more than three — to give you a thorough overview of the firm and a true-to-life experience of what it is like to be a lawyer at Tahmidur Remura Dewey LeBoeuf.
