Vacation Placement Scheme

Forbes offers a limited number of unpaid vacation placements within the Blackburn or Preston offices from students' second year onwards.

Vacation Placements last for a period of 1 to 2 weeks during July and August, and during that time, students will gain the opportunity to shadow a solicitor in one or more practice areas within the firm. The aim of the placement is to give students a real experience of the world of work in a busy law firm.

The process is similar to that of Training Contract Applications and students who wish to seek Training Contracts are encouraged to apply.

The application process for 2017 Vacation Placements is now closed. If you have not heard anything by 31 May, please assume you have been unsuccessful for this year.

The processes will reopen after the New Year when you will be able to apply online for the 2018 Summer Vacation Placement Scheme and 2020 Training Contracts.
