White & Case is a global law firm with nearly 2000 lawyers worldwide. Our network of 38 offices provide the full range of legal services of the highest quality in almost every major commercial centre and emerging market. We are proud to represent some of the world's longest established and most respected names alongside many start-up visionaries. As part of our training contract, we offer every trainee a guaranteed six-month overseas seat.
White & Case is looking to recruit ambitious trainees who have a desire to gain hands-on practical experience from day one. They should have an understanding of international commercial issues and an interest in working on big-ticket, cross-border work. We recruit both law and non-law students and owing to the nature of our work, language skills are of interest. Applicants will be welcomed for their individuality, their ability to contribute to the cutting-edge work we do and the energy with which they approach the job at hand. They should have achieved, or be on track to achieve, a high 2:1, have a positive and friendly attitude, be enthusiastic and work well in teams.
We offer two-week vacation scheme placements over the winter, spring and summer holidays. The aim of our placements is to allow candidates the opportunity to gain experience of how a global law firm operates and to introduce them to the type of work our lawyers are involved in on a day-to-day basis. During the placements, candidates are invited to attend a number of informal presentations and group exercises as well as some fantastic social events. There are 20 places available on each scheme and remuneration is £400 per week.
Our Summer vacation schemes are open to penultimate year students, finalists and graduates and run from 19 - 30 June 2017 and 10 - 21 July 2017.
