Careers Guide

Clifford Chance

Start your career in law with Clifford Chance, where the brightest minds work as one team for our clients. It’s never too early to think about a career in law. If you’re looking to be part of a challenging environment where everyone is empowered to be themselves, then you should consider a legal career with leading global firm – Clifford Chance. You don’t need to study law at university to join them – about half of their trainees study completely different subjects, from history to zoology. You just need to be hungry to learn. Curious and open to new challenges. Bright. And happy to work as part of a down-to-earth, collaborative team. If that sounds like you, they run a number of open days for year 12 and 13 students, including a dedicated ACCESS programme for those of you who are studying at a state school. ACCESS is a pioneering programme consisting of seven different components, each focused around specific core areas of your personal and professional development. It's your introduction to law and your first step towards a training contract.


Clifford Chance is dedicated to making Law accessible for all. To keep up to date with opportunities, find out more about SPARK and ACCESS and find guidance and advice, follow their dedicated early careers pages.
