About Kennedys

Kennedys is a specialist national and international law firm with unrivalled expertise in litigation and dispute resolution. The top 30 law firm has approximately 1700 people globally, across 32 UK and international locations.

Kennedys is regarded as a leader, not just because it has some of the most respected legal minds in their field, but because they know the importance of being practical, commercial and approachable. Kennedys prides itself on offering its clients clear legal advice.

Being distinctive is one of our core values, meaning we aren’t afraid to do things differently. That’s why we are breaking the mould of the traditional trainee solicitor recruitment timeframes, and will be recruiting one year in advance. This means you will have less of a wait to start your training contract with us! We will be hosting a winter vacation scheme in January 2020 and assessment days for our 2021 training contracts will take place in February 2020.
