I have only just seen this thread but I was successful with;
Bakers employability open day london
DLA piper open day
Clyde&co insight day
DWF open day
Shoosmiths insight evening

I am not posting this to gloat, but my top tip would be to personalise your applications for anyone who is still applying firms want to see that you really want to get to know them and can see yourself working there.

I applied for the Vac scheme at bakers and DLA piper this year and was rejected even after attending these Events btw
Willkie Farr & Gallagher - Vacation Scheme!
Joining Willkie means joining a law firm with a dynamic growth story - the London office has grown by 91% since 2017. And 2020 marked the firm's first year of trainee recruitment in London. That means the chance to work in small, nimble teams on high-quality matters.

Willkie particularly cares about recruiting the best talent, regardless of your background. The firm does not ask for specific A Level (or equivalent) grades, but you should be on track for (or have achieved) a solid 2.1 or above.

Apply by 20 December 2021
