Our trainee solicitors have access to broad-based training in a fast-moving and challenging environment. You can expect to be doing fulfilling and relevant work from the start.

What we're looking for

We recruit strong graduates capable of developing expert legal skills and commercial acumen. Intelligence and common sense are a prerequisite (we look for English speaking law graduates awarded top marks). More importantly we look for well-rounded individuals who will fit in well.

Our trainees are outgoing, articulate team-players who are willing to work hard when called upon and genuinely interested in progressing their careers. We aim to recruit people who will stay with the firm, and therefore seek candidates who have a long-term interest in Bird & Bird and the sectors and areas of legal practice we focus on.

What we offer

  • Praticantato (training internship)
  • The opportunity to gain experience in a diverse range of sector and practice areas
  • Seminar participation
  • Paid study leave

Our trainees take on responsibility from day one and enjoy varied and challenging work for industry-shaping clients. Although the work you will do will be hard, we take pride in the knowledge that our environment is genuinely friendly, supportive and stimulating.

If you become a trainee with us, you will be given the chance to excel.
