Graduate Careers in Law

Be in the spotlight.

Be at the heart of a leading global firm. Be celebrated for your individuality. Be invested in and be exceptional. Be in the spotlight.


Being in the spotlight means being at the forefront of the action.

It is being known by name and being valued for the things that make you a unique individual. It is the thrill of being given real responsibility, where the stakes are high and so are expectations. It means you are driven to develop when challenged — never doubted and always encouraged. Being in the spotlight means a lot of things, but being alone is not one of them. The support you receive from the firm and your team are unparalleled; our people are at the heart of what we do, and the relationships you build will be the foundation of your success.
