Vac Scheme deadline day: coverage of all today’s big news

By on

With most top law firms’ deadlines for vac scheme applications at midnight tonight, it’s going to be a fun Friday evening for wannabe solicitors.

Comparisons have been made between the vac scheme deadline and today’s football transfer deadline…

For some, the two have blurred…

Whichever way you look at it, the usual film and vodka session is off…

Of course, there are exceptions…

Hopefully this duo aren’t “literally” injured/dead after their exertions this week…

Aaarghh!!! So many tabs!

This really doesn’t help…

Wait a second, perhaps film and vodkas is back on…

Of the reason for the change, Wragge & Co was unable to confirm whether it had experienced an unusually high number of applications or encountered IT problems, with a firm spokesperson telling Legal Cheek: “We have extended the deadline to give people the weekend to finalise their applications. We made the announcement yesterday on Twitter and have had a positive response.”

There are a host of other firms with vac scheme application deadlines in February, including transatlantic firm Hogan Lovells (14 February) and national pair Shoosmiths and Weightmans (both 28 February). The full list is here.
