We want junior lawyers with a global mindset.

The Firm

White & Case is a global law firm with nearly 2000 lawyers worldwide. A network of 38 offices provide the full range of legal services of the highest quality in almost every commercial center and emerging market. It is proud to represent some of the world’s longest established and most respected names alongside many start-up visionaries. Every trainee, as part of the training contract, is guaranteed a six-month overseas seat.

The Work

In the EIPAF team (energy, infrastructure, projects and asset finance), joint ventures, acquisitions and restructuring in the oil and gas sector are frequent pursuits. The 125-strong London team has recently worked on the development and financing of a petrochemical complex in Rabigh for Saudi Arabian oil company Saudi Aramco worth $8 billion.

Trainee Profile

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.



It's worth bearing in mind that between 70% and 80% of each trainee cohort completes a vacation scheme with the firm before starting as trainees. White & Case runs four, two-week vacation schemes over the winter, spring and summer holidays. Each vacation scheme has 20 places. Vac schemers can submit departmental preferences before arriving.

The firm offers 50 training contracts each year. Trainees start in either March or September
