Vacation Scheme – Gepp Solicitors LLP

A week’s vacation scheme at Gepp Solicitors will give you an insight into the legal profession before applying for legal jobs once you have left University.

If you are successful in obtaining a placement with Gepp Solicitors, you will spend a week during the Easter break visiting each of our six departments and working alongside our Partners, Fee Earners and Trainees.

Whilst spending time in each department, you will be provided with practical tasks, which once completed you will receive feedback on.   

At the end of the week, you will be asked to give a 10 minute presentation in front of senior staff on one aspect of the Law that you learnt during the week. They will also ask you for feedback on your week's placement so that we can continue to improve the value of the placement.

During the placement, you will have the opportunity to have lunch with two of our Trainees who will be able to tell you what it is like being a Trainee in a busy firm of Solicitors.

Who should apply?

You must have started an undergraduate degree.  You don't have to be studying Law, but a genuine interest in a future career in the Legal profession would be an advantage.
