Summer schemes

London summer scheme

You’ll be welcomed into our London office and given an opportunity to spend time experiencing life in a creative law firm for yourself. It’s also our chance to get to know you and understand what you may be able to offer us. 

During these two weeks, you’ll be fully integrated into our teams, getting involved in projects and giving you a fantastic insight into whether a career at RPC is right for you, and if you’re right for us.

What's more, if we are unable to run our summer schemes in person (due to government restrictions), they can be delivered virtually.  You will experience the same RPC work environment and culture, just online.  Our preference, and aim, is to run the 2022 summer scheme in person.

Hong Kong Summer Programme

We run a summer programme in our Hong Kong office for candidates with Chinese capability. Successful applicants will spend two weeks with us, during which you’ll have time in both of our Insurance & Commercial Disputes and Corporate teams to experience different practice areas.

This is as much a chance for us to get to know you as you to know us. During the programme, you’ll take part in our Training Contract assessment, which includes a group discussion, a group presentation and written skills assessments. If you’re successful, you’ll be invited to a motivation interview by a People Resourcing Team member and an Associate. The last round of the selection process is a Partners' panel interview.
