Vacation programmes


Member firms host vacation programmes throughout the year which law students can attend. These programmes vary from firm to firm and provide a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the practice of law as well as the different member firms. Many firms recruit extensively from graduates that attend their vacation programmes. Keep an eye on this page for regular updates on available vac programmes.


Join us for the virtual Phatshoane Henney Group Open Week taking place from 6-10 June 2022!

It is an invaluable opportunity for students to get to know South Africa’s largest legal network and our top law firms nationwide, to help you decide where you’d like to apply to for vacation programmes or your articles/PVT (practical vocational training).
