Do you want to be in the spotlight?

We are one of one of the world’s leading law firms, everybody who succeeds here does so because they thrive on complexity and responsibility. That is why our training programme is different, we put our trainees in the spotlight right from the very start. This is your chance to begin your legal career in the best way possible: working on the most exciting cases and deals with a supportive team behind you. There will be pressure, but there will also be lots of opportunities to excel.


Whoever you are, whatever your story.

We encourage applications from all diverse backgrounds; whatever your ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or socio-economic background.

We welcome applications from candidates with disabilities*. We encourage candidates with a disability or a long-term health condition to be open about this and request the support that they may need at each stage of the recruitment process. We will work with you to establish the most suitable support and to implement adjustments.

Our online application form also allows you to make us aware of any mitigating circumstances that may be relevant for us to consider upon review. This includes candidates whose grades have been impacted by Covid-19.

We are committed to diversity and inclusion and to help remove unconscious bias from our recruitment processes, we have introduced blind application screening and blind interviewing. This means the Early Careers team member reading your application form will not see the name of the university you are attending or have graduated from. If invited to an interview your interviewers will not see a copy of your application form as we know if you have reached this stage of the recruitment process you have demonstrated great potential so far, and therefore the interview is a chance for us to understand your motivations, experience and interests in more detail as well as get to know you.

To have a confidential chat with a member of the Early Careers team before applying, please contacts us at or on 0207 903 1000.

* Disability includes, but is not limited to, conditions such as visual and hearing impairments, mobility impairments, autism, diabetes, epilepsy, dyslexia, dyspraxia, mental health conditions, speech impairments and major illnesses such as cancer and MS.
