Summer Programme 2020

Job/scheme locations: 
Type of opportunity: 
Application deadline: 

To be considered for one of Cooley's four training places per year, you must participate in our London summer programme, which is designed to give you insight into the work we do, as well as provide you with opportunities to experience the unique culture of our firm. The two-week summer programme, which accepts up to ten people per year, involves a combination of hands-on work on active matters, shadowing other trainees, dynamic skills sessions, talks, trips and social events. With the goal of involving programme participants in client work to the greatest extent possible, students may find themselves attending meetings, taking part in conference calls, going to hearings, assisting on deals, conducting research or taking part in project work. Our aim is to plan a programme from which you will learn and have the opportunity to demonstrate your potential, while simultaneously gaining as much insight as possible into the firm, our people and the work we do.

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.
