    Is it possible to get a training contract from the winter vacation scheme?

    Usually it's summer that they have internships that target students who want a training contract. But I was thinking will I get a training contract from doing the firm's winter vacation scheme? I want to give myself an extra chance of getting a training contract.

    Yes - they wouldn't run them otherwise. You are not guaranteed a TC though, it's obviously dependent on how well you do on the scheme/subsequent interviews.

    Typically winter schemes are just for a different group of people (non-lawyers/finalists etc).

    Thanks J-SP. I thought only summer ones are for contracts and the winter ones are for experience.

    will there be a chance for me to get a training contract in the winter if I am a law degree students?

    I saw your other post about HK. It might be different there compared to the UK, but any winter scheme in the UK gives you a good chance of securing a TC.

    You just have to make sure you are eligible. Some winter schemes in the UK are only for non-law students for example.
