The Legal Cheek Virtual Vacation Scheme, run in partnership with The University of Law (ULaw), takes place from Monday 14 December until Wednesday 16 December 2020.

It features a series of short talks, workshops and Q&As with lawyers from leading firms, corresponding written exercises set by ULaw, as well as an employability expo and various socials.

Find out more about the Scheme, including speaker details and a schedule for the week, here.

The Scheme is open to all students. Its aim is to help those whose employability preparations have been disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic gain insights into life as a lawyer across a range of practice areas. The Scheme is not part of the participating firms’ recruitment processes. 

How it works
All sessions take place virtually via the Hopin platform.

Workshops, talks and Q&As run as ‘Sessions’, with students able to comment and ask written questions in the livechat. Exercises are set by ULaw, with answers supplied at the end of the Scheme.

Social events and the Employability Expo run in a series of virtual booths, which allow students to join interactive video chats.
