Summer Vacation Scheme - 2021

One great way to find out what it is like to be a Taylor Walton trainee is to join our summer vacation scheme. This excellent opportunity allows you to gain first-hand experience of working in a busy and successful law firm. You can expect to carry out real client work and receive support from a solicitor throughout your time with us.

The summer vacation scheme is a fantastic learning opportunity - the scheme normally takes place for two weeks in July each year.  Unfortunately due to the Coronavirus, we will not be able to run our usual programme.

Our 2021 summer vacation scheme application period is now closed. 

The scheme is aimed at those in their penultimate year of their degree and/or those looking to secure a training contract commencing at our next intake - September 2023.  Ordinarily we aim to offer successful candidates the opportunity to experience work in both a commercial department and one of our private client departments.  Successful applicants are involved in research tasks, attend client meetings and court, practice drafting skills and work alongside experienced fee earners on genuine client matters.  We provide excellent opportunities to enhance your team working skills by working with fellow summer students on a case study considering issues facing the legal market. 

Due to Coronavirus our 2021 programme will be adapted.  We are planning an interactive virual experience offered to a small number of successful applicants.  The programme will run over a number of days in July 2021.

The deadline for our 2023 Training Contract applications is 31 July 2021
