Summer placements

Our award-winning summer placement scheme is the ideal introduction to Mills & Reeve. We recruit the majority of our trainees through our summer vacation scheme and candidates are strongly encouraged to apply to us for a place on this scheme.

You will enjoy two weeks' work experience at one of our offices in Birmingham, CambridgeLeeds, London, Manchester or Norwich. A competitive allowance will be provided to help with the cost of accommodation, travel and other expenses.

During your time with us, you will work with a variety of lawyers, moving to different parts of our practice every two or three days. You will be placed in situations where you can do real work, such as undertaking legal research, preparing or checking draft documents, attending court, meeting clients or serving proceedings.

We will pair you with one of our trainees who will answer your questions and help you make the most of your experience. Presentations, lectures and social events will help you get to know our culture.


If you have any questions at all, please email our Graduate Recruitment team at [email protected]
