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, 29 August 2022 until Friday, 9 September 2022. 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 2024 Graduate program.
As a part of your application, please submit an up-to-date academic transcript, curriculum vitae and cover letter.
At Clifford Chance we understand that our true asset is our people. Inclusion is good for our team and their families, our firm and society.
We are committed to treating all employees and applicants fairly and equally regardless of their gender, gender identity and expression, marital or civil partnership status, race, colour, national or ethnic origin, social or economic background, disability, religious belief, sexual orientation, or age. This applies to recruitment and selection, terms and conditions of employment including pay, promotion, training, transfer and every other aspect of employment.
Our goal is to deliver an equality of opportunity, an equality of aspiration and an equality of experience to everyone who works in our firm. Find out more here.
