Training Contract

Key programmes and opportunities – Graduates 

Live Your Ambition

Our commitment to training – and support – sets us apart, and it sets intellectually curious lawyers on the way to achieving their goals. 

To help you decide where to specialise, you’ll take four six-month “seats”, each in a different practice area, and possibly a different country, too. Many of our Trainees take an international seat or client secondment. And as we have market-leading expertise across the full range of practice areas, you’ll get to work on high-profile deals wherever you go, most of them across borders. 

You’ll be well supported, too, with a senior colleague to guide and mentor you, a structured personal development plan and continuous training and feedback. Our Trainees have shown they appreciate our approach in the best way possible: this year 91% of our qualifying Trainees chose to stay with us.

If you're a non-law student, we’ll enrol you on the Graduate Diploma in Law – a conversion course offering the legal knowledge to start your career. From there, you’ll join our law graduates on the Linklaters Legal Practice Course. And, like them, you’ll receive ongoing, tailored training, before and after you qualify. 

High-profile, flexible and expertly-guided: join us, and get the support you need to live your ambition.
