Vedder Price

Our Summer Associate Program and Trainee Solicitor Programme are our most valuable sources of new associates, and we work hard to help make it an experience that translates into your future success as an associate here.

Summer Associate Program

As a summer associate in our U.S. offices, you can expect to be integrated quickly into our operations—through substantive work assignments, observation opportunities and training sessions tailored to our practice areas. We pay careful attention to your progress. Through our Summer Associate Advisor Program, you will work with an assigned advisor who provides practical advice and guidance related to practicing law and dealing with general, work-related issues. During your tenure as a summer associate, there will be two formal review sessions, one at the mid-point of the program and the other at the completion of the program, incorporating written attorney feedback regarding each completed project. Our social events calendar includes a variety of activities, ranging from office-wide events to small-group outings planned by associates, ensuring there are plenty of opportunities to get you out of the office and enjoying your summer.

Trainee Solicitor Programme

As a trainee solicitor in our London office, you will work with our top-ranked Global Transportation Finance, Finance & Transactions and Employment teams on complex, client-facing matters. We offer a limited number of training contracts annually. It is our hope that everyone who participates in our programme will join us as an associate after qualification. This approach ensures that our focus is on your development and future success as a junior lawyer at Vedder Price.

We are currently accepting applications from prospective trainee solicitors to commence training contracts in September 2024 and March 2025.  To learn more, please see our Trainee Solicitor Opportunities page.
