We encourage students to participate in our vacation clerkship program and we fill the majority of our graduate positions through this program. As a vacation clerk, you will be given extensive training on all aspects of the firm, drafting and research skills.

Our structured graduate program is designed to provide the best foundation for your future success, wherever your career takes you. Graduates will have three rotations in different practice groups. During each rotation, graduates are assigned a supervising partner and buddy. A learning and development program also supports the on-the-job learning to help you to develop your leadership, business development, negotiation and presentation skills. Herbert Smith Freehills funds and assists graduates at the firm who need to complete practical legal training to gain admission to practice.

As a clerk, paralegal and then graduate entering the legal market, I was excited to get into work at HSF and frustrated at the many stumbling blocks that would pop up along the way.
