Summer Vacation Scheme
Posted on Dec 16, 2018 by Baker McKenzie LLP
Throughout the scheme you will get to experience two of our main practice areas. We think it's really important that you experience with us mirrors the reality of the role of a Trainee and life at the Firm.
We'll involve you in live transactions, deals and cases, and where possible, we'll encourage you to attend internal, departmental and client meetings as well as court hearings. The opportunity to socialise with trainees and other vacation schemers is important to us to we will host a number of events for you to attend. Recent socials have included rounders in the park, ping pong, pizza making, mini golf and afternoon tea on the Thames.
Because transactional work is at the heart of what we do, we'll encourage you to spend one of your two seats in our Corporate or Banking teams. We won't expect you to know everything, so we'll provide training sessions to help familiarise you with some of our typical transactions, and to help you develop a range of key skills that you'll need if you go on to join us as a Trainee. You'll also take part in a client pitch exercise which is a great opportunity to work closely with other people on the Vacation Scheme.
