A vacation clerkship is a 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 in two different practice areas, 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 three-week program, we will also host sessions from professionals across the firm to give you a real insight into how our firm works.

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, 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.

Please submit your CV, academic transcript and cover letter along with answers to the application questions.

In 2019 our Summer Clerkship Program will run from Monday 2 December until Friday 20 December. Successful candidates will automatically be considered for our 2021 Graduate program.

Although we are an international firm with amazing resources and connections, there was more of a boutique size feel which I joined the firm; the benefit of this was that there were always plenty of opportunities to obtain a wide range of experience with tasks like drafting and negotiating.
