Your professional development and training will help you to become the world-class lawyer of the future

Our practice-specific training programs combine with programs from the Clifford Chance Academy to provide the core of your formal training. These traditional programs are supplemented by our unique global business skills curriculum, which focuses on presentation, business development, client communication, and people-management skills. At the mid-level and senior associate levels, our attorneys participate in off-site development centers, where they practice business skills through exercises that involve real-life scenarios, and create individual development plans with the assistance of partners and Clifford Chance Academy professionals. 

Your substantive training will include regular and formal sessions on transactional law and litigation. This is our promise. From your first day through to partnership – if that happens to be your goal – you will find our non-stop learning environment fundamental to your development as a sophisticated, successful, and well-rounded lawyer.

Clifford Chance Academy provides world-class learning opportunities across all our offices

Partners and senior lawyers in the firm work alongside external experts to develop the tailored curriculum not only to help expand our associates legal and business knowledge, but to enhance their cultural awareness and global perspective as well. 

Growth will come from both in and outside the classroom, on the job, and online with the help of our extensive interactive eLearning courses and knowledge-sharing videos.
