Clifford Chance offers law students the opportunity to join a global law firm

The intellectual challenges at Clifford Chance are extraordinarily rich. Client matters rarely fall conveniently within one practice area, so our people have to combine their expertise to cut through the most complex of problems. With offices throughout the Americas, Asia, Europe and the Middle East, our lawyers advise internationally and domestically: under common law and civil law systems; in local and cross-border transactions; on day-to-day operations; and on the most challenging matters.

Doing this work means you'll have to consider every angle. You won't just think through a problem; you'll think around it. You will connect regularly with colleagues around the globe. You'll also work together to find solutions across borders, languages and legal systems. It's this sense of collaboration that truly sets us apart.

Our vision

We will be the global law firm of choice for the world's leading businesses of today and tomorrow. Attracting and retaining the best talent is central to reaching this goal.

Charles Adams, Global Managing Partner

We know how to make our resources, which includes 3,300 lawyers across our international network, work for all our clients, and can call on the specialised skills of globally-recognised, top-ranked lawyers to help them reach their business goals.

This way of working, and the expertise of our talented lawyers, regularly delivers headline-making results for our clients.
