Application deadline: 

Cooley has opportunities for trainees to start in late August 2022 and recruits for these positions through its summer programme.

Interested applicants should apply to the 2020 summer programme, which will be open for applications until 31 January 2020. Please submit your application well in advance of the deadline. Shortlisting may commence ahead of this date, but we do not assess applications on a rolling basis.

Cooley lawyers are stimulated by solving business and legal challenges. The work we do is complex, so our lawyers must relish developing the intellectual and analytical mastery needed to accomplish finding difficult answers to thorny questions. We are seeking candidates who share this passion, as well as an appreciation of how to develop effective business and working relationships. In addition, applicants should be able to demonstrate the following:

  • Motivation and initiative
  • Communication skills and leadership
  • Service orientation and work ethic
  • Superior judgement and problem-solving skills
  • Commitment, enthusiasm and team spirit
  • Professionalism

Cooley’s academic requirements are a minimum 2.1 at degree level for any discipline and 128 UCAS points or equivalent, not to include points from AS levels or General Studies (320 points under the pre-2017 UCAS Tariff). We will accept applications from individuals who do not meet these requirements where an individual has clear and valid mitigating circumstances and has otherwise demonstrated excellence at another point in their academic or professional history.

Shortlisted applicants can expect to hear from the firm within two weeks of the application deadline, with all applicants being
informed of their final status within a month of the deadline.
