You'll work with lawyers experienced in one of our practice areas.

You'll also have the support of a supervising lawyer and a trainee 'buddy' who you can turn to at any stage.

Here we listen to Toby Horner and Yasmina Kone discuss vacation schemes at Clifford Chance.

Why should you attend?

It's a unique learning experience. We'll expect you to be hungry to learn, open to new challenges and eager to build new networks. We'll also give you full access to our facilities (including the swimming pool, restaurant and fitness centre).

Most importantly, you could be taking your first step towards commencing a Training Contract with us.

Increasingly, we are looking for STEM students to join us as the law is not what it used to be. New technology will shake up our sector and revolutionise it, as it has for most other major sectors of the economy. The speed of change will only get faster. That’s where you come in.
