10 City law firms that are offering vac schemes this winter — for which it’s not too late to apply

By on

But you’ll need to get moving …

Already the first application deadline for 2014 winter vac schemes has passed, with magic circle firm Slaughter and May‘s super-early 18 October deadline slipping by earlier this month.

But it’s not too late to apply for the ten other big City firms which offer winter vac schemes — traditionally a less popular placement than summer ones which can offer students a higher chance of bagging a place.

Note, however, that four firms shut their applications at midnight tonight, with deadlines for the remaining six at different points in November. In order of deadline, the firms are…
