About Clifford Chance

Where agile minds meet

Who we are:

We’re a leading global corporate law firm. But we’re not a typical one. Far from it. Life here means doing the best work for exceptional clients while being yourself. We look for individuals, not for ‘typical lawyers’. We’re focused, but we know how to have fun. And we collaborate. At every level. Which makes this a brilliant place to learn. To find your feet quickly. To get ahead.

So, are you ready?

What we do and where:

We offer legal expertise across a broad spectrum of commercial issues. And we have a diverse mix of clients. They include everyone from governments, regulators and trade bodies through to big corporates, global banks and not-for-profit organisations.

That variety definitely makes life here interesting. As does the scale and scope of what we do. Our work covers Corporate; Global Financial Markets; Real Estate; Litigation & Dispute Resolution; and Tax, Pensions & Employment.

And when it comes to where we are, we work in major financial centres across the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

How you can get involved:

You don’t need a law degree to join us. (About half of our trainees come from non-law backgrounds.) What matters is that you’re resilient, curious, creative and open to new challenges. You’re someone who loves to learn. A great problem solver. A smart thinker. You’re commercially-savvy, solutions-oriented and up for working as part of a close-knit team.

One of the ways you can show us you have what it takes is to experience life here before you apply for your Training Contract. Take a look at our website to explore our different programmes for students – they range from Open Days through to summer schemes and virtual events.
