Vacation Schemes

Our winter and summer vacation schemes are a great way for students to get a ‘taster’ of the firm and decide if a career at Covington is for them. Our vacation schemes provide an opportunity to become integrated into the firm and gain an insight into the work of a Covington lawyer.

Eligible applicants will be in their final year of a non-law degree or penultimate year of a law degree. Graduates and applicants further along their career path are also welcome to apply.

Students have the opportunity to participate in:

  • a series of interactive presentations from across practice groups and international offices;
  • an group activity;
  • networking sessions with trainees, solicitors, and partners;
  • an independent research project focusing on a practice area of interest; and
  • social events to help you get to know the firm.

Key Dates
