Details of how to apply for our opportunities

Training contracts / placement schemes

When should you apply?

Training contracts and the placement scheme are open to anyone in their penultimate year of a law degree or final year of study of a non-law degree. We also welcome applications from postgraduates and individuals who have pursued other careers before committing to the legal profession.

For a Dubai training contract, you must attend a placement scheme and be assessed during the scheme.

Application process

If we're impressed by your application form, we'll ask you to take part in our online future potential assessment, followed by a first stage interview with HR. Do well and we'll invite you to a placement scheme. Our trainee recruitment and summer placement scheme arrangements are integrated, so if you successfully apply to our summer placement scheme then you will have the opportunity to take part in an assessment day for a training contract during your placement.
