Applications for our 2021 Summer Vacation Scheme are now closed.

We appreciate the value of gaining proactive work experience for those wishing to pursue a career in law. That is why we offer a one-week Summer Vacation Scheme to allow future lawyers to gain an understanding of what it is like to work in a leading commercial law firm, and experience life at Acuity Law.

Our Summer Vacation Scheme takes place at our Cardiff and Swansea offices on the 14th of June 2021. 

During our vacation scheme, you will get the opportunity to gain valuable commercial experience in a dynamic and award-winning law firm, working alongside industry leading lawyers.

We adopt a hands-on approach to our vacation scheme, providing participants with the opportunity to work on “live” matters, attend client meetings, and work with partner-level lawyers as well as networking with juniors from across the firm.

Areas of law that may be covered during the Summer Vacation Scheme include:

  • Commercial Property
  • Corporate/Banking & Finance
  • Commercial Litigation
  • Employment
  • Technology
  • Commercial Contracts

At the end of the vacation scheme, a selection of candidates will be invited back to participate in an additional week’s work experience where they will have the opportunity to gain additional experience within a practice area of their choosing.  An enviable opportunity for candidates seeking further insight into commercial law.

Many of our Vacation Scheme attendees apply for our training contract programme having benefited from a first-hand experience of life at Acuity.

We accept applications from candidates who have completed, or are completing an undergraduate degree of any discipline, and who are eligible to apply for a training contract to commence in September 2022.

Words From Our Trainees

  • As this was my first vacation scheme, I was unsure of what to expect, and eager to get the most out of it. Acuity helped me in this massively; from day one they were incredibly generous in the time they devoted to giving me a range of legal experience. I was given hands on, often live projects to work on, and was made to feel like part of the team rather than just an intern or temporary member of staff. I thoroughly enjoyed my vacation scheme at Acuity.
