Work Experience and Summer Vacation Scheme

Your first step towards a successful career in law

Each year, we hand-pick 12 people from a big pool of talented applicants, who get the chance to undertake an intensive 2 week training and experience programme within our firm.

Open to university students from around the region and across the UK, the SJP Law Summer Vacation Scheme is designed to provide dedicated, talented Law students with a real taste of life as a solicitor.

Real experience

Over the course of the programme, you will cover three different seats, in compensation, commercial and property, alongside an introduction to IT – providing you with experience working in different departments.

During your time with us, you will not just be making up the numbers, you will be shadowing our directors, learning from them and getting an authentic insight into what life is really like as a solicitor at a top independent law firm.

It is a real opportunity for you to see whether a career as a solicitor is right for you, and whether you have got the necessary skills to thrive in a competitive, fast-moving industry.

Successful candidates

The programme is designed for UK university students reading Law, and those studying allied arts subjects looking to undertake a Law conversion course in the future.

Successful applicants will be high achievers - outstanding academics with a commitment to working hard, and a genuine interest in pursuing a future career as a solicitor at our firm.

Your chance to shine

The Summer Vacation Scheme is not just an opportunity for you to experience life as a solicitor - it is your chance to show us what you have to offer our firm.

Think of it as your 2-week interview. If you can make an impression and stand out from the crowd, there is always the chance you could be offered a training contract, and the opportunity to start a successful career with SJP Law.


To apply for our Summer Vacation Scheme, please submit a handwritten cover letter and a supporting CV to our Human Resources Manager before 28 February for a potential placement that Summer.
