Springboard Scheme

The Clifford Chance Springboard Scheme is designed to give an insider’s view into what it’s like to work for a leading global law firm. If you’re an exceptional first year student or second year student set on a career in commercial law, this scheme is the ideal way to learn more and secure your future early. 

On one of our week-long schemes, you’ll gain invaluable insight through shadowing some of our lawyers. You’ll even get to spend a day at one of our European offices to show you how Clifford Chance interacts globally. And it’s not just experience; we’ll also help you to develop your legal knowledge and commercial awareness through a series of case studies and seminars. A trainee ‘buddy’ will help to ensure that you make the most of the opportunity during and after the scheme. What’s more, you’ll be given a £350 salary for your hard work.

At the end of the scheme, the very best candidates will be invited to apply for a Training Contract conversion interview – an industry first.
