Training Contract - Law and Non-law

With eight seats, not four, our training contract is one of the most flexible in the City. 

We divide our business into seven practice groups, which divide further into specialist teams. You can submit preferences for where you want to spend each three months of your training contract – deciding as you go along. As a trainee, you must do at least one seat in each of Corporate, Dispute Resolution and Finance. Other seats are available in Antitrust, Competition and Trade; Employment Pensions and Benefits; Real Estate; and Tax. 

As a trainee at Freshfields, you have the opportunity to go on secondment away from our London office, an experience which will help you gain more autonomy and responsibility. We offer secondments to clients, to charities, or to our own international offices, such as Paris, Hong Kong, Dubai or New York. 

There’s no denying that training at Freshfields can be hard work. The hours can be long, especially when a deal is closing or you’re nearing settlement or trial on a dispute. But at the same time, the work is fast-paced, varied and challenging. You’ll get plenty of client exposure and, with that, lots of responsibility – and the experience will be invaluable as you move beyond your training contract.

Applications are for training contracts starting February 2019 and August 2019
