Training and development at Linklaters 

All trainees and junior lawyers at Linklaters need access to exceptional training and development if we are to achieve our vision of becoming the premium global law firm. This is why we created the Linklaters Law & Business School.

The Linklaters Law & Business School is a framework for career-long learning and development. We have integrated business skills and technical knowledge in one holistic syllabus, giving you the mix of expertise you need to thrive in a rapidly changing world. Wherever you work, we guarantee that at every stage of your career, you will receive the same high-quality learning experience as your colleagues.

Our integrated learning structure has currency and credibility on a global stage, inside and beyond Linklaters. It is the result of detailed consultation with clients as well as colleagues. There are milestone programmes for every stage of your career, and it starts from the moment you join us as a trainee or junior lawyer.

New Lawyer Global Orientation Programme

The New Lawyer Global Orientation Programme offers you high-quality entry-level training, as well as valuable international networking opportunities. All our new lawyers, from around the world, attend this four day course in London. The focus is on enhancing your skills as a lawyer, rather than focusing purely on theory, and it’s the perfect opportunity for you to put the theory gained while studying into practice.

The programme was designed in conjunction with the College of Law, London, and is taught around a simulated transaction. From project and business management to legal research and drafting, this hands-on, practical training covers technical aspects of our work. With direct access to the shared knowledge and experiences of partners from across the world, it will enhance your everyday legal skills and prepare you for the reality of life in a global law firm.
