Trainees meeting

Vacation Schemes

The TLT Vacation Scheme is your chance to impress us; we hope you’ll be impressed with TLT too.

We run schemes every Easter and summer for either second-year law students or final-year students, graduates and mature candidates, whether they’ve studied law or a different degree.

We’ll allocate you to a specific team for the week with real work, lots of interaction with senior TLT members and regular client contact. You’ll have the opportunity to socialise with our current trainees who fully understand the challenges you'll face – make sure you pick their brains for advice. You will also meet with Partners over breakfast seminars, information meetings and a more relaxed dinner: this will cement your experience and help you fully grasp what it means to work for TLT.

The Vacation Scheme Assessment includes:

  • A strength-based interview conducted by a partner and a member of the management team. This type of interview is designed to determine your natural strengths and weaknesses – what drives you and what you find challenging. This helps us to identify people with the best potential to succeed. You can read more about strength-based interviews here.
  • A group exercise in which we want to see how well you can communicate, interact and solve problems as part of a team.

Application details for 2018 will be published here in due course. Follow us on Twitter for the latest news.
