Law Training Contracts
You’ll get more from your training contract at Linklaters.
Join Linklaters and you become part of one of the world’s most prestigious law firms – a global network of exceptionally talented, highly motivated lawyers working as a team and learning from one another to fulfil our ambition of becoming the leading global law firm.
We are the only firm to have market-leading global teams across the full range of corporate, finance and commercial practice areas. This, partnered with our culture of innovation, teamwork and entrepreneurship, means that we have built strong relationships with the world’s leading companies, financial institutions and governments and are asked to advise them on their most important and challenging transactions and assignments.
Whether you are a law graduate or a non-law graduate, your training contract is built around six-month seats in four different practice areas. This will often include a seat in one of our international offices or a client secondment. Each practice group has a Group Trainee Solicitor Partner who is responsible for supporting and mentoring you as you develop. There are also specific seminars and training modules during each seat relevant to each practice area. You will receive excellent training throughout your contract courtesy of the Linklaters Law & Business School.
We will give you a say in the content of your training, as well as the flexibility to change your preferences as you go along. At key stages during your training contract you will discuss your progress with the Trainee Development team and draw up a plan for the remainder of your training.
Our training and development programme is widely acknowledged to be one of the best of its kind in the world. Bringing substantial investment, an innovative approach, an entrepreneurial focus and a global outlook to legal education, we’ve created a career-long learning programme that is consistent across our global network and uniquely focused on creating a new kind of international commercial lawyer. Over two-thirds of our trainees undertake an international secondment and a further one-third go on secondment to a client, meaning that the experience gained by our lawyers is truly multi-dimensional.
