London summer scheme

You’ll be welcomed into our London office and given an opportunity to spend time getting to experience 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.

Who can apply?

Studying law? You can join us for the summer scheme if you’re in your final or penultimate year.

Hong Kong Summer Programme 

We run a summer programme in our Hong Kong office for candidates with Chinese capability. Successful applicants will spend a week with us, during which you'll have time in at least three different practice areas. 

This is as much a chance for us to get to know you as you to know us. 

What's the selection process?

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.

How can I apply?
