A vacation scheme is a great way for you to experience working at Chan Neill solicitors. It's also a great opportunity for us to get to know you and assess your suitability for a possible career at Chan Neill or discuss alternative career options with you.


Our vacation scheme ranges in length from 2 weeks to 2 months and is designed to expose candidates to a range of legal teams within Chan Neill, including China Desk. We involve candidates in cases and treat them as a part of our team for the duration of the programme. For each candidate, we provide:


·         a dedicated mentor

·         work experience across a range of practice areas

·         opportunities to attend client meetings

·         opportunities to participate in social events organised by the firm or its clients


Every year, we run a spring vacation scheme (two weeks) and two summer vacation schemes (two weeks to 2 months), which are open to anyone who is eligible to apply for a training contract. Spaces are limited.

The 2018 Spring application is now closed.
The 2018 Summer application is now open.
