We run two summer schemes each year so that potential trainees can spend two weeks with us – a week in two different departments.

There are opportunities to go to court, assist with research and to draft documents.

We also hold a series of talks providing information about our practice areas and our people… and there’s a social side too.  You can meet partners, lawyers and trainees in a relaxed atmosphere and you’ll soon get a good idea of whether a career at RPC seems right for you. (We pay our summer students £300 per week.)

WHO CAN APPLY?
We welcome applications from penultimate and final year law students, final year non-law students and candidates who have already graduated.
