Reed Smith was crowned the winner in three categories - Best Vacation Scheme, Best Opportunities for Skills Development (Vacation Scheme), and Best Vacation Scheme (by an international or city firm) - at the AllAboutLaw Awards 2018 last night.

The awards, which received nominations for 51 firms, recognised the top law firms for vacation schemes and training contracts. The results are based on feedback received directly from current trainee solicitors and recent vacation scheme students; all were asked to rate their firm, their training and their overall experiences.

Grace Ambrose, graduate recruitment specialist at Reed Smith, said: “I’m absolutely delighted that we have won three awards. Reed Smith as a firm invests a lot of thought and time into our vacation schemes and it is brilliant to see that this is recognised amongst our next-generation lawyers. We look forward to another exciting year.”

The two-week vacation schemes, which take place in June and July, offer students the opportunity to gain a strong insight into life at Reed Smith, as well as providing a solid account of the type of work encountered as a trainee.
