Our summer vacation scheme

The closing date for applications to our 2022 scheme has now passed. All candidates will be contacted by the end of May to be advised if their application has been successful.

About the scheme

We launched our Summer Placement Scheme in 2012 with the aim of offering paid work placements to undergraduate students who cannot afford to undertake unpaid work experience or who are from under-represented groups within our firm and the broader legal profession.

We know from our own experience as recruiters that gaining relevant experience can make a crucial difference to a candidate’s ability to secure a training contract.

Every year we give four undergraduate students (of any academic discipline) the opportunity to experience working life at Bhatt Murphy.  Placements are paid at London Living Wage rates and we help with accomodation and travel costs for students living outside of central London.  

Feedback from past participants in the scheme can be read here.

In addition to our Summer Placement Scheme, we also work with the Hackney Schools Inspire! programme to offer work placements to secondary school students in our local area.

Please note that we do not offer ad-hoc work experience or internships outside of our summer placement scheme and the Hackney Schools Inspire! programme.
