Summer Vacation Scheme 2024

To become a trainee solicitor at Bird & Bird, you can apply through two different routes by attending a Vacation Scheme or applying directly for a training contract.

A vacation scheme with us is much more than just work experience. It is an opportunity to discover your potential and kick-start your career in law, taking you straight to the heart of our global firm.

Develop your knowledge of our firm through introductions to different areas of law and business services. Immerse yourself in a department and have an unfiltered look at the way people work in a law firm and the impact of client relationships, globally.

Our vacation scheme is both an opportunity for you to showcase your potential as a trainee solicitor and decide whether Bird & Bird is the right firm for you.

Summer Vacation Scheme – Monday 24 June to Friday 5 July 2024

Application process

Applications open on Thursday 14 September 2023. Our Vacation Scheme applications close on Friday 15 December 2023 at midnight. You can apply if you can commence a training contract in 2026. This means you will be in your penultimate-year of a law degree, final-year of a non-law degree, or a graduate.
