Vacation Scheme

Think we might be the one? The best way to really know if Osborne Clarke is the firm for you is to experience it all first-hand by joining our summer vacation scheme.

A summer like no other

Each year we give 70 candidates the chance to experience life at Osborne Clarke via a two-week placement in one of our UK offices. The perfect opportunity to get an insight into the day-to-day of a global commercial firm, soak up the culture and get to do real work with expert supervision.

Like most things in life, you get out what you put in. Rather than observing from the side-lines, we want you to take an active role in your experience with us.

Understanding the value of the vacation scheme

Hear from Training Principal, Alexandra Gower, on the opportunities the vacation scheme offers.

This means that while you’ll be given a comprehensive (and educational) programme to follow, you’ll also be given the space - and encouragement - to take the initiative, dive in deeper to the areas that interest you, and truly make the most of your time with us.

Over 90% of our vacation scheme candidates accept offers to train at the firm after experiencing our approach.

As well as shadowing the lawyers and experiencing legal work up close, you’ll take part in regular in-depth knowledge sessions with partners from across the firm, covering the most important themes impacting the legal industry and the world at large.

You’ll also attend a selection of social events, giving you the opportunity to flex those networking skills and practice building your profile. Each week you’ll have a review session with your mentor, a senior lawyer, to discuss progress, with the opportunity to ask your burning questions.

If this hasn’t already inspired you to apply, perhaps knowing that over 90% of our vacation scheme candidates accept offers to train at the firm will do the trick?

"During my vacation scheme I felt like an extension of the teams, being included in client meetings, and working on live matters. This made for a truly immersive experience." - Mayank Tripathi, Future Trainee
