Training Contract/Vacation Schemes
Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer is one of a handful of leading international law firms, with offices across the world.
Our clients are mainly big commercial businesses whose names are well-known. The type of work we do divides into helping clients achieve what they want through doing deals, advising them on real and potential problems, and helping them sort out their disputes. Our practice is very diverse, and constantly changing to meet our clients’ evolving needs.
Clients look to the firm to be able to answer any legal or regulatory questions that confront them. Organisationally, the firm’s lawyers work in one of eight departments: corporate; finance; dispute resolution; real estate; intellectual property/IT; tax; employment, pensions and benefits; and antitrust, competition and trade.
Training Contracts We are looking for around 100 trainees to start training with us in London in 2015, split between two intakes in February and August. Current trainees studied at nearly 50 different universities. Many did a law degree, but others read subjects ranging from music to biochemistry.
The Application window is between Thursday 1 November 2012 and 31 July 2013.
Vacation Scheme We are offering 60 placements in 2013. Our vacation scheme gives students a good idea of what life is like as an international commercial lawyer, and what life would be like at Freshfields. It's fun as well as hard work.
Application window from Monday 1 October 2012 to Sunday 13 January 2013, but the sooner you apply the better.
