We recognise that exceptional lawyers come from all backgrounds. We're committed to recruiting a diverse group of trainees and building on our inclusive culture; our application and qualification processes are designed with this in mind.

We offer a 2 year trainee associate programme through hiring from our vacation schemes as well as open days, workshops and virtual internship to enable you to gain an insight into life as a commercial lawyer.

Full details of these opportunities can be found on the Herbert Smith Freehills website

Further details forthcoming.

On the vacation schemes, you won’t be watching from the side lines. You’ll hit the ground running, taking on real work for real clients. You’ll work directly with colleagues who are experts in their fields, and happy to share what they know. You’ll get to choose your two seats so your experience is tailored to you.

Spring Vacation Scheme – Applications will open in September 2022.

Summer Vacation Scheme – Applications will open in September 2022.

Herbert Smith Freehills recruit all trainees directly from their vacation scheme.
