If you’re looking to secure a training contract at a top 100 law firm, then one of the best ways to do so is by impressing during a vacation placement also known as a work placement. However, obtaining a place on a vacation scheme can be even more competitive than for a training contract. It’s therefore vital that you carefully craft your application and give yourself sufficient preparation time.

Here are the deadlines for a number of firms’ vacation schemes:
