2022 Training Contract
Applicants should have a strong and consistent academic record and be on track for, or have obtained, a 2:1 degree at minimum. They will need to demonstrate they are solution-driven and interested in business law. The deadline for trainee solicitor programmes commencing two years’ ahead is 12 July.
Successful candidates will be invited to take an online critical thinking assessment in order to be considered for an interview with our graduate recruitment panel and further written assessments. Our interview style is a conversational and open process, to allow you good insight into the work and culture at the firm.
Training contract applications will be screened on a rolling basis, after the Vacation Scheme application process closes.
*BIG TIP* Don’t waste an application word count telling us facts we already know about the firm - instead tell us in your own words what attracts you to Akin Gump and how our practices and client focus match your own commercial interests and career aspirations.
