Vacation Schemes 2021
Immerse yourself in different disciplines and experience what Weil has to offer throughout our two-week vacation scheme. You will work alongside some of our most senior associates, carry out similar tasks and responsibilities as our trainees and get a greater insight into two different practice areas of the firm.
This is the chance for you to experience what it is like to be in the spotlight at an elite international law firm.
Attend various talks, workshops and social events as you build your network and gain a depth of knowledge about Weil. You will be assessed for a training contract throughout your time on the vacation scheme. A number of assessed elements are scheduled throughout the scheme including: a group exercise, a client pitch and a final round interview.
Throughout the two weeks you will be mentored and supported. We have up to 20 places on our two-week paid schemes, which run during the spring and summer holidays. You can apply for one of our vacation schemes if you are able to begin a training contract in 2023, whatever your degree subject.

We are looking to recruit candidates from all universities and degree disciplines. Our academic requirements are AAB at A-Level or equivalent and a 2:1 degree (obtained or predicted). We take into account mitigating circumstances and use Rare’s contextualised recruitment system enabling us to measure an individual’s performance against the average grades of their school. We review all application forms holistically, which means if you fall slightly short of our academic requirements but demonstrate great potential, you will still be considered.
