Our vacation schemes are a great introduction to life at Herbert Smith Freehills. You'll sit with a partner or an associate and be given real work for real clients. You'll be involved in workshops and presentations and be given the opportunity to attend formal and informal social events. You will meet others on the vacation scheme, as well as partners, associates and trainees and by the end of the scheme you should have a good idea if Herbert Smith Freehills is right for you.
After accepting a place on our London scheme, you may apply to spend time in one of our offices in Brussels, Madrid, Hong Kong, Paris, Shanghai, Singapore or Tokyo. We will take care of all flight costs, accommodation and living expenses.
Pay: £350 per week
Every winter, spring and summer we run two day workshops exclusively for first-year students in our London office. You'll hear from leading lawyers, take part in interactive projects that show the breadth of our practice and shadow one of our current trainees. Accommodation is provided and you'll be invited to an evening social event.
