Training contracts and vacation placements for graduates

Looking for a career in law? Then you’ve come to the right place. Whether you’re a student or already in the work place, we have a range of opportunities to help you fulfil your potential.

As one of the biggest law brands, we can offer you the chance to learn from some of the best lawyers in their field on a day-to-day basis. You’ll get early client contact, responsibility and accountability, working for some of the world’s biggest organisations on cases that will make headlines, unless of course your job is to make sure the story stays out of the press.

Everything about our training contracts is designed to help you grow both personally and professionally. You’ll be assigned a supervisor to provide feedback and help you develop and be presented with a range of opportunities for getting involved in social occasions and CSR activity. You’ll also get the chance to apply to work from one of our 63 worldwide offices or take up a secondment with a firm from our impressive client roster. If you’re a little further back in your career journey, our Vacation Scheme will give you a real insight into what it is to be a lawyer and give you an advantage when it comes to applying for a training contract with us.

All you have to do is choose the option most relevant to you from the above menu to find out more.
