Latifah Sat

While I studied law at Oxford University, I knew that I wanted to try something outside of law before applying for training contracts. I was fortunate to secure a role at a think tank in Hong Kong where I focused on land and housing policy research.

I really enjoyed my clerkship as I felt I got to really experience the firm and what it would be like to work there. Everyone was very honest and open about their experiences and happy to share their time to speak with me about any questions I had.

Daniel Ng

Trainee Associate Global Financial Markets, Singapore

I remember being daunted by the firm’s application form (it was slightly long!). When I did start the process I really enjoyed it because I was able to show different facets of who I am.

For practitioners, promoting responsible business can have a profound impact within the community. For example, solicitors can lead initiatives that improve access to briefs for female barristers. Finance lawyers can help energy clients transition into clean energy and become more sustainable. These types of initiatives can be spotted in every Clifford Chance office, and can be led from anyone between graduate to partner level.

I always wanted to develop my legal career internationally, and what was particularly attractive about Clifford Chance's graduate program was that graduates are offered a 6-month international secondment to one of the 36 offices in its global network. I was also impressed by the firm's outstanding work in progressing inclusion and diversity.
