The vacation scheme at Russell-Cooke is a great way to experience what it's really like to work at a leading law firm

We believe that our vacation scheme offers the right balance of support and autonomy, and really demonstrates what life is like as a Russell-Cooke trainee.

What makes a Russell-Cooke training contract different is the diverse nature of our work and the unstuffy nature of the working environment. As a firm we offer our clients our expertise in areas ranging from high-value real estate and corporate law to charity, professional regulation, private client, family law and specialist litigation. Few firms can offer this range of experience in a training contract.

Although the scheme next year may take place online, we will try to give you as close as possible an experience of what a typical day as a trainee at Russell-Cooke is like.

At the end of the week there will be a form of assessment and interview and there is the possibility of an offer of a training contract then and there.

No. The trainee recruitment process will run alongside the vacation scheme.

The vacation schemes take place in spring each year.

The interview will take place with one of our senior associates who will assess your application form, your commercial awareness and competencies for the role.

We are looking for ambitious, positive and competitive trainees who are ready for the challenges of real-life legal work.

Applications normally open in November. Check back regularly for our official application date.
