Law Training Contracts
Live your ambition at Linklaters.
Do you want a career in commercial law that makes the most of your talents? To work with some of the world’s brightest legal minds? To experience the excitement and challenge of high-profile deals? To receive market-leading training from experts in their fields? Whatever your ambition, we can help you to achieve it with a training contract at Linklaters.
We have a long and proud history of developing graduate talent through our training contract. We continuously develop our programme, meaning our trainees are in the best possible position to explore different areas of practice and consider options for qualification. We are the only firm to have market-leading global teams across the full range of practice areas, so you’ll be involved in the highest quality work in every area you experience.
Our global presence allows us to provide expert legal advice across the world – both in the 29 cities in which we have offices and in additional jurisdictions where we have strategic alliances with other firms. Most of the work we do is cross-border in nature and since over two-thirds of our trainees spend a seat on an international secondment (plus a further one-third undertaking a client secondment) you can expect a truly international and multi-dimensional experience through a training contract at Linklaters.
We take on law and non-law graduates and provide funding for the GDL and our bespoke LPC, which includes commercial skills training and an optional LLM. Throughout the training contract, you’ll benefit from dedicated Group Trainee Solicitor partners who are responsible for mentoring you as you develop, and you’ll have the support of the Trainee Development team and your principals in each practice group, who can help you shape your ideal career. With every seat, you’ll also take part in seminars and training modules that focus on specific areas of law, plus receive excellent continuous professional development, courtesy of the Linklaters Law & Business School.
