The Cripps vacation scheme

If you enjoy a challenge and want to know what life at a top law firm is all about, then our summer vacation scheme is the opportunity for you. Designed specifically for ambitious undergraduates considering a legal career, you’ll work across the business for a fulfilling two-week period.


You’ll experience three different practice areas, meet an extraordinary variety of people, and enjoy a unique insight into the work we do. It will be challenging but fun. You’ll do research that extends your knowledge of the law, present project work to some of our legal professionals, and get encouragement and honest feedback.


Placements are full time at our Tunbridge Wells office. You’ll work in a supportive and enthusiastic team, learn from our lawyers and other professional staff, and see how a leading law firm like Cripps operates.



We’d like to hear from you if you are a second year or third year undergraduate or currently studying the GDL. Places are limited so we look for candidates with an excellent academic record, and strong verbal and written communications skills.


You should be enthusiastic, willing to learn, and eager to understand our client-centric approach to legal services.
