Our London-Asia training contract
If you want your career as an international lawyer to really take off, experience working across the world will be really valuable. So here’s your chance to boost your career by training in London and Asia.
What you will gain
You’ll qualify as a lawyer in England & Wales after the two years. Where permitted by local bar rules and after a period of post-qualification experience, you will also be admitted in the country where you’ve been working. And you'll work with the biggest companies in the world, at a top international law firm, surrounded by dedicated, supportive people who are ready to help you learn.
Who we're looking for
If you are native in an Asian language such as Mandarin, Korean or Indonesian, studying in your penultimate year or beyond at a UK university, this could be for you.
You'll be curious, commercially minded and keen to help the world's biggest brand names on their most challenging legal issues.

What happens next
If you’re selected, you’ll be invited for interviews and a writing exercise in our London office.
If you progress from that, we'll invite you to join us for a month's vacation scheme at Freshfields – three weeks in Asia, plus one in London. Based on that, plus an interview and a language test, we could offer you a London-Asia training contract.
The deadline is 31 January 2018.
