Our two year program offers a challenging opportunity for learning, exploring and building solid legal skills. Trainees undertake four 6-month seats in our principal areas of work: corporate, litigation and arbitration, bankruptcy and corporate restructuring, and finance. Trainees in each seat work under the direct supervision of a partner.

Our Trainee FAQs provide helpful information.

The 2018 application process is now closed. We will be accepting applications for September 2019 in February 2019.
