Law training contract


At Kirkland & Ellis we combine the benefits of a small trainee intake with the excitement of being part of a global firm, employing over 3,500 lawyers in 19 offices around the world.

Talent, drive and enthusiasm. That's what makes a Kirkland & Ellis lawyer.

Three of our main practice areas are corporate, finance and investment funds so it is likely you will spend a seat in each of these. Your other seat(s) will be allocated from one of our other complementary practice areas.

Applications for our Training Contracts commencing in 2026 open on 1st October 2023 and close on 31 December 2023. If you are in your penultimate year of your law degree or final year of your non-law degree, or beyond, you may apply.
