The Role
Lee & Thompson are inviting applications for a one-week Vacation Scheme, commencing on Monday 8 August 2022! The week will comprise a series of practical exercises, talks and networking opportunities within their Film & Television, Music, Corporate & Commercial and Dispute Resolution teams.

The Vacation Scheme will give you a real taste of working in a law firm specialising in the media, technology and creative industries, whilst helping them to identify potential future Paralegals. (Please note, there is no guarantee of a Paralegal role following attendance on the Vacation Scheme and training contracts are only offered to individuals who have worked at Lee & Thompson as a Paralegal for at least six months.)

Each Vacation Scheme attendee will be paid £250 to cover expenses during the five days of the programme.

All details can be found on this page, including the requirements, application form, deadline and process.

> Demonstrates a genuine commitment to pursuing a career as a solicitor in the worlds in which the firm are immersed: media, technology and the creative industries; and

But (in each case) if you have extenuating circumstances, they will still consider your application.
> Lee & Thompson are committed to increasing the diversity of their teams and welcome and encourage applications from groups currently underrepresented in their workforce and across the legal profession.
