    We find it's often helpful to connect students with others on their vacation scheme. That way you can get an early opportunity to get to know students and discuss the scheme. So feel free to post your scheme, dates (and location, if relevant) below.

    Hi, seems this thread hasn't really go started!

    I've been fortunate enough to receive two vacation scheme offers.

    June - Shoosmiths (Birmingham)
    July - Addleshaw Goddard (Manchester)

    These firms are very different to the US/magic circle elite so-often mentioned on these forums, keen to know if there are any others applying for more city/national firms?

    Hey not sure if I count but I've also got two schemes in Summer:
    Simmons & Simmons
    Osborne Clarke (both in Bristol).

    Did you apply to any firms in London?

    Sorry to but in here but I'm also doing the Simmons scheme - just in London. How come you applied to the Bristol office? (Nothing wrong with it I'm just wondering).

    I live in Bristol and honestly, London just doesn't really attract me. I think in Bristol I'll get to be at a good firm but also get the benefit of a better work life balance. I think later I can always move to London if I change my mind.

    Yep I think those count! I opted against applying for London vacation schemes but might apply for TCs there.

    Any particular reason why?

    Only because I didn't apply to any London firms. Was hoping to find other people in the same boat as most people I know is also applying to London!

    The second one (thank God, I need the break!). Me too though, I've heard the JD vacation scheme is intense/it's hard to convert. I'm not feeling too hopeful for this one but will give it a shot!

    Good idea to revive this @Naomi :)

    Spring - Shearman
    Summer - Latham

    Keeping my fingers crossed for us all that we can translate our schemes into TCs!!
