The CMS Academy is the main route to a Training Contract at CMS. It offers you the chance to gain real work experience and the skills you need to succeed. The innovative three-week programme is split into two parts: ·
- One week of training on the business of law in our London office.
- A two-week internship in the CMS office of your choice. There will be a range of innovative activities and events for you to get involved with, which will prepare you for a career in law. You’ll have the opportunity to meet with clients, network with lawyers at all levels, work on projects and debate with thought leaders in the legal and industry sectors. A supervisor and trainee buddy will be your main point of contact and will provide high-quality work which will give you an accurate insight into the work of a trainee solicitor.
Each student is paid £400 to attend the programme for one week.
After completing the programme, successful candidates will be offered a training contract.
