About Jones Day

Jones Day is a global law firm with more than 2,500 lawyers in 43 offices across five continents. The Firm is distinguished by: a singular tradition of client service; the mutual commitment to, and the seamless collaboration of, a true partnership; formidable legal talent across multiple disciplines and jurisdictions; and shared professional values that focus on client needs. Our 200 London-based lawyers (including around 60 partners and 40 trainees) collaborate with their colleagues from Jones Day practices and offices across the globe to guide clients through their toughest challenges.

In our rare and distinctive, non-rotational training system, you will seek and receive work across all our practice areas at the same time, to provide  flexibility and early responsibility, and develop you as a lawyer fast. Because you won't move department every six months, you won't miss the end of deals or trials you have worked on. Our work placement schemes  over the Winter, Spring and Summer vacations are the route to our way of training. Operating like mini-training contracts, you gain a real insight into trainee life at our global law firm.

We open applications for our 2019/20 Placement schemes and 2022 Training Contracts on 1 September 2019. We recruit on a rolling basis, and cannot guarantee availability, so apply early.

Don’t forget to cite Bright Network on your Jones Day application form, they’re keen to hear from our members.
