Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner is a global law firm which represents 40% of the Fortune 500, protects their interests and supports their critical business needs. This is a law firm that is constantly changing, growing, improving. A culture that attracts brilliant minds and fosters new thinking.

When you start your 2-year training contract you will participate in a comprehensive induction programme, which is designed to prepare you for practice and to equip you with the practical skills needed to excel as a trainee here.

You will work on real projects from the outset, rotating through four, six-month seats in different parts of the business during your two-year training contract. We encourage trainees to undertake a secondment to one of our clients or an International secondment to one of our overseas offices.

You will have a lot of guidance and input into your seat allocations. Before each seat change, you will meet with your partner mentor and a member of the Graduate Recruitment & Development team, to discuss your future ambitions and which seat options best meet those goals. We work hard to match your seat preferences with the needs of the business; on average 85% of our trainees will receive their first or second preference each seat. That way, when decision time comes on your career, you'll be fully equipped to make the choice that's right for you.

You will receive in-depth department training at the beginning and during each seat, which will give you the legal know-how needed to get stuck-in. You will also have support from a dedicated training team and can expect to receive 232 hours of training by the time you are a qualified lawyer.

  • You must be a 2nd year Law or 3rd year non-law student or graduates
