Vacation Schemes

We run summer and winter vacation schemes in both our Johannesburg and Cape Town offices, and can usually be flexible with the dates to fit with the vacation dates at your university. The scheme is aimed at penultimate year and final year law students. The deadline to submit applications for Vacation Programmes and Articles for 2022/2023 is 31 May 2021; we do however advise you applying as soon as possible, as we may begin inviting for interview places before the deadline.

Completing a vacation scheme with us is not compulsory, but it is an excellent way of learning about the firm and also having the opportunity to impress our panel of recruiting partners. If you apply for our Summer 2019 Vacation Scheme you do not need to submit an additional application for Articles.


Applications close on the 31 May 2021

We're waiting to hear from you.
