LLM students at Linklaters are transformed into global lawyers. Join us and you will experience a close-knit professional network, world-class training and development, an open and collaborative culture and, importantly, strength across all practice areas of commercial law.

You will discover what it feels like to do influential work on a global stage and will be routinely involved in innovative, complex cross-border deals.

Opportunities in many offices

We offer LLM students a range of positions in a number of offices throughout the world. We go out of our way to meet as many of you as possible, to talk openly and honestly about what we offer. Whether through an event or job fair, in the US or the UK, we believe there is no substitute to our personal, informal approach.

Wherever you meet us, you can expect one-to-one conversations. It is an opportunity to get to know partners from different jurisdictions and to find out what our culture, the work we do and what the global opportunities we offer are really like. These sessions are ideal to get a feel for whether Linklaters is the right choice for you and for us to get to know you better.

Personal qualities count for a lot

Our aim is to become the premium global law firm. We will ask a lot of you and look hard for the kind of qualities that can take you far in your career. A strong commitment to practising business law is, of course, essential. We also look for people who are globally-minded, innovative thinkers and team players – those who share our ambition to deliver exceptional results for clients. We will help you to combine your outstanding legal mind with the business skills needed to work successfully with global clients on challenging assignments.

Global development

We recognise the diversity of background, education and experience represented by LLM students and so we treat each application on an individual basis. This includes considering where you will be working – although it is usually in your country of qualification.
