2016

"It's very international with guaranteed overseas seats. They have high-profile clients and, during the interview, it really felt like they wanted to know me as a person. It was a very different experience compared to interviews with other firms."
First year trainee, London
"I went to a commercial awareness talk where I met an associate at the firm who told me how international her work was."
First year trainee, London
"A friend, who had applied a year earlier, told me about the firm and its culture. This and further research on my part made me apply for a vac scheme, which I enjoyed very much."
First year trainee, London
"There were several reasons why I applied to White & Case. Firstly, the guaranteed overseas seat is a very exciting part of your training contract. As an international firm, it makes sense to go abroad and see how the firm works globally. Having a guaranteed seat is very worthwhile and one that very few, if any, firms apart from White & Case actually guarantee will occur. Another key reason was that White & Case had a smaller intake compared to some of its competitors. I felt a smaller intake would allow me to have greater responsibility early on, as well as allowing me to get more focused training. Finally, I completed a vacation scheme and this contributed heavily to my reason for accepting the training contract here."
First year trainee, London
"White & Case is well respected with a huge global reach. There are great opportunities for travel and international work and the overseas seat was a huge draw. All the people I met prior to applying were very nice and seemed to genuinely enjoy their jobs."
First year trainee, London
"The international aspect of the firm. The guaranteed seat abroad. The open and friendly atmosphere."
First year trainee, London
"The friendly atmosphere was clear from the moment I first arrived and the firm offers a guaranteed overseas seat."

"The overseas secondment definitely attracted me towards the firm."
Second year trainee, London
"I wanted to work for White & Case as it is truly a global firm that is friendly and well-respected, and this is reflected in the great international opportunities, with a guaranteed overseas seat."
Second year trainee, London
"I applied here because of the good size of intake: it is enough for a great social life and good mix of people, but not so many you feel you're part of a giant human conveyor belt. I also enjoyed the vacation scheme and knew that I would receive great pay at work."
First year trainee, London
"The multi-jurisdictional work on offer was a factor in my application."
