Where tech minds meet
CLIFFORD CHANCE IGNITE
Tech-focused Training Contracts
I was a little worried I wouldn’t be able to tick all the right boxes – that my story, everything that shapes and defines me, wouldn’t be suitable for a law firm. But Clifford Chance has given me the chance to use everything I have to my advantage, and to carve out a career for myself. No one here is conventional. There are former pilots, marines, professional artists and musicians. When I was younger, I thought I was going to be a scientist. But an internship in IP and litigation really sparked my imagination. I knew I could use the law to help scientific research organisations overcome regulatory hurdles and innovate. I’ve already received outstanding training and unconditional support to follow my interests and passions at Clifford Chance. I know I’m in a safe space to harness the skills I have and bring my background and expertise to the table.
