Application process

We are able to make reasonable adjustments within our application process to ensure that you have the best chance of success. We understand that there’s not a “one size fits all” approach to adjustments so our team will work with you individually to understand more about your requirements.

We run a number of events at our offices, on campus and online. You can let us know of any adjustments you’ll need on the day by emailing recruit.madrid@cliffordchance.com or recruit.barcelona@cliffordchance.com and someone from the team will be in touch to discuss this with you.
