Summer Vacation Scheme 2019

Job description

Norton Rose Fulbright is a global legal firm. We provide the world’s pre-eminent corporations and financial institutions with a full business law service. We have more than 4,000 lawyers and legal staff in over 50 cities across Europe, the United States, Canada, Latin America, Asia, Australia, Africa and the Middle East.

Recognised for our industry focus, we are strong across all the key industry sectors: financial institutions; energy; infrastructure, mining and commodities; transport; technology and innovation; as well as life sciences and healthcare. Wherever we are, we operate in accordance with our global business principles of quality, unity and integrity. We aim to provide the highest possible standard of legal service in each of our offices and to maintain that level of quality at every point of contact.

The firm's client portfolio is testament to its strength and range of expertise, and includes financial institutions, public sector bodies, successful businesses and private individuals. It is a leading advisor to FTSE 100 companies, and a market leader across its business divisions – commercial services, corporate, finance and projects, litigation and real estate - as well as in specialist fields such as private capital, and across its chosen sectors: financial services, government, energy and infrastructure, retail and consumer and real estate.

Work placements
Finding the place you want to spend your career is a moment you’ll always remember, and that’s exactly the kind of insight we offer on our vacation schemes. Whether you’re with us for one week or two, we pack a lot into these three schemes. You’ll do real work, for real clients. You’ll network with colleagues. You’ll present group projects on legal issues. It’s a lot of new ground to cover, but if you want to understand what it’s really like to work here, nothing else comes close. Pay for the week is £360, and on top of that, you’ll leave us knowing for sure that you’re on the right path.

What we are looking for

An impeccable academic record and intellectual rigour are prerequisites.

You’ll have an enquiring mind, strong interpersonal skills, and the motivation to make constant progress. You’ll never stop pushing yourself forward, grasping every opportunity – both at home and abroad – that our firm has to offer. You’ll be interested in business too, and keen to build relationships within a firm that’ll help you make progress with purpose.

Qualifications

We expect successful candidates to have at least AAB at A-level (or equivalent) and be on track for a 2:1 (or equivalent).
