The firm is looking for outstanding people who have the potential to become exceptional lawyers. Initiative, enthusiasm, ambition, intellectual rigour and teamwork are some of the traits particularly valued at Latham. Trainees who demonstrate their motivation and ability to excel will thrive in a first-class training environment and be rewarded with a brilliant career. In terms of academics, we look for candidates who have achieved a minimum of AAB at A-Level (or equivalent) and a 2:1 at undergraduate degree.
Latham offers a training contract with real responsibility combined with supervision from market-leading lawyers. Trainees spend six months in four different seats and have the opportunity to apply for a client or international secondment in their third or fourth seat. In addition to training organised by our learning and development team throughout the training contract, trainees also benefit from a core three-week 'trainee foundation' designed to bridge the gap between law school and practice.
