Boult Wade Tennant’s voluntary vacation scheme offers a select few the opportunity to see what it’s really like to be a patent or trade mark attorney at one of the most successful IP firms in the UK. We’re not saying that this week long scheme will be a breeze. It will be hands on and you’ll be working across teams and offices, and with real cases. You’ll be asked to contribute from the moment you walk through the door and the week will be jam-packed with case lessons, workshops, shadowing and mentoring. If you think you have the drive, talent and ambition to become a patent or trade mark attorney, then we would love to hear from you.
Who can apply
The scheme is intended for undergraduates in their penultimate or final year, and postgraduates. We also encourage applications from those who are already part of the professional world but who are seeking a change of career.
The common factor is that all those that get a place on the voluntary vacation scheme are excellent communicators. Also, all have a relevant undergraduate/postgraduate degree and/or industry experience.
Academic entry requirements
You will need:
- To have obtained, or to have predicted, at least a 2:1 in a relevant academic subject at undergraduate level. Those with a patent interest must be studying for, or already have, an undergraduate degree in a relevant technical field (science and/or engineering).
- 340 UCAS points (AAB) at A Level.
