    Hey All,

    As law firms start to announce their opening and closing dates for the upcoming vacation scheme cycle, we'll keep an updated list on this below. In all cases, we'll post only when it's verified on the firm website with the link. We will also split between Winter/Spring/Summer where the dates differ.

    Here is the initial formatting, but I will adjust this for easier reading as we grow the list of firms. There are also still plenty of firms to add: If anyone else wants to help, please comment with more firms, the relevant dates, and a link to the firm website.

    Thank you!

    Hey! This is probably a good place to look:

    Useful list with application deadline dates. But do look into the individual firms as there are several errors on there re training contract commencement date (as in wrong year!) and also salaries quoted are lower than they actually are in some cases.
