Training Contract

The Clifford Chance Training Contract gives talented, committed graduates the skills and experience to develop into exceptional lawyers. Join us and you’ll work on high-profile deals across our different sectors. And wherever possible, we’ll tailor your training to reflect your interests and ambitions, helping you to develop into the lawyer you want to be.

And as new technology begins to revolutionise the legal sector, we now have a brand-new IGNITE Training Contract to help us be at the forefront of that change.

What you’ll do:

Throughout the 24-month contract, you’ll rotate through our core areas: Finance, Corporate, Capital Markets and one other of your choice. The fourth rotation might involve working in a different practice, a different team or an international assignment. In each seat, you’ll have in-depth, sector-specific training which will bring you up-to-date with the latest trends, ideas and innovations in that area. The whole time, you’ll have the support of our Graduate Development Team and a dedicated supervisor.

The support doesn’t end there. You’ll also have access to not only a Legal Support Manager and a Career Development Partner, but also the award-winning Clifford Chance Academy. This acclaimed centre works to develop innovative learning tools and offers exceptional training courses led by internal and external experts. The Academy also holds regular talks with clients to give you an understanding of the wider industry.

And it’s not just training and development – like all our world-class lawyers, you’ll receive a host of other exceptional benefits, including a highly competitive salary, free gym membership, dental plan, private healthcare scheme and pension scheme.

Our IGNITE Training Contract will give you all the same opportunities, but with a unique emphasis on technology and access to some of the world’s most innovative learning environments. You’ll have the time to develop new skills. To reconsider what tech can do for law. To redefine how Clifford Chance delivers the best results.

What we’re looking for:

Our Training Contract is extremely competitive. We’re looking for applicants with a strong and consistent academic background who can demonstrate a real passion for law, irrespective of degree discipline.

Non-Law graduates will need to complete a one-year Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) before starting the new LLM Commercial Legal Practice Course (LLM CLP) which has replaced the Legal Practice Course (LPC). Throughout the GDL and LLM CLP, we’ll pay your fees and give you a significant maintenance grant.

Our requirements for the IGNITE Training Contract are the same, but we’re also looking for switched-on graduates who have an edge when it comes to technology. You might have completed a STEM degree. Or taught yourself to code in the evenings. Or be developing an app on the side of your law degree. The only extra thing you need for this opportunity is excitement for the possibilities that law and tech meeting could spark.

Application deadlines:

Applications for our Training Contract open on the 1st August and close on the 16th December. For successful candidates, assessment days will be held in early February.
