Linklaters is to allow non-law students to apply for summer vacation schemes in their penultimate year for the first time.
The move comes as part of a revamp of the firm’s graduate recruitment programme that will see an additional summer placement and the removal of the two-week winter scheme.
Graduate recruitment manager Faye Wimpenny said: “Students are becoming more savvy and we’ve found that there’s a real appetite from non-law students to get into law firms earlier.”
The magic circle firm currently runs two four-week summer vacation schemes that are available for law students only and a Christmas scheme for third-year non-law students.
For the 2012-13 academic year, the firm will run three three-week summer vacation schemes that are open to all and a two-day insight programme in the winter.
Non-law students who undertake the vacation placement will also be able to take part in the training contract interview process that takes place after the summer schemes, allowing them to secure a position three years in advance.
