A vacation clerkship is the perfect way to learn about working at Clifford Chance and meet our people.

We recruit students that we believe have the potential and ambition to join us once their degrees are completed.

The clerkship program allows you to follow the life of a lawyer at Clifford Chance closely - you will sit with the team, working with our lawyers on real, live client projects. You will be treated as a part of our team and given opportunities to demonstrate your ability.

To ensure you get the most from your program we will assign you a mentor - an experienced lawyer who will help you settle in and answer any questions you have.

Across the two-week program we will also host sessions from professionals across the firm to give you a real insight into how our firm works. You will be given the opportunity to interact with team members from around the global network and get to see what life is really like for a Clifford Chance lawyer.

To be successful, you will need to demonstrate your potential to become a first-class lawyer and your willingness to take advantage of the many opportunities that you encounter.

You will need to exhibit ambition, drive and commitment, the ability to articulate your ideas clearly, and the desire to build relationships and deliver outstanding service.

We're also looking for business awareness, a keen commercial insight and a strong ability to lead and manage.

In addition to these attributes we ask that applicants have a consistently strong academic record.

Our Winter Clerkship Program 2 is intended primarily for those students operating on a trimester university schedule. For this reason, Program 2 will run from Monday, 30 August, 2021 until Friday, 10 September, 2021. Please only submit an application for this program if you are unable to participate in Program 1. Successful candidates will automatically be considered for our 2023 Graduate program.

As a part of your application, please submit an up-to-date academic transcript, curriculum vitae and cover letter.
