Profile

Norton Rose Fulbright is a global law firm. We provide the world’s preeminent corporations and financial institutions with a full business law service. We have more than 3800 lawyers and other legal staff based in more than 50 cities across Europe, the United States, Canada, Latin America, Asia, Australia, Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia.

Wherever we are, we operate in accordance with our global business principles of quality, unity and integrity.  We aim to provide the highest possible standard of legal service in each of our offices and to maintain that level of quality at every point of contact.

Training Contract

There’s no progress more vital than what you’ll experience on our training contracts. Over two years – broken into four six-month seats – you’ll hit all kinds of new firsts with us, big and small. You’ll explore new areas, for instance. Each seat will take you through different sectors and practice areas, with at least one seat in each of corporate, banking and litigation. One of your seats will almost certainly be on secondment too – your first encounter with working in a new country, or maybe six months spent working in a client office. As you move from one milestone to the next, you’ll have a sizeable team at your back. A partner mentor to turn to and to learn from. A trainee buddy to teach you the ropes. And the whole trainee development team, to keep you on track from day to day.

At Norton Rose Fulbright we look for intelligent, ambitious, internationally focused and commercially-minded individuals to drive our business. We will expect you to think creatively and find new ways to solve problems. We expect our trainees to deliver work that meets the highest professional, ethical and business standards for our clients. All applicants must have achieved at least AAB in their A-levels or equivalent and be on course to achieve (or to have achieved already) a 2.1 degree or above.

Salary 

Trainee salaries start at £44,000, rising to £48,000 in the second year of training. Our Newly Qualified salary is £75,000.

Vacation Scheme

Finding the place you want to spend your career is a moment you’ll always remember, and that’s exactly the kind of insight we offer on our vacation schemes. Whether you’re with us for one week or two, we pack a lot into these three schemes. You’ll do real work, for real clients. You’ll network with colleagues. You’ll present group projects on legal issues. It’s a lot of new ground to cover, but if you want to understand what it’s really like to work here, nothing else comes close. Pay for the week is £350, and on top of that, you’ll leave us knowing for sure that you’re on the right path.

First Step Scheme/Open Days

Everyone remembers the first day they walked through the doors of their future firm. For many of our lawyers, that happens on our open days and first step programmes. First step caters to first-year undergraduates, while our open days are designed for undergraduates, graduates and career changers of all degree subjects. Either way, it’s the opportunity to step through our doors, make a first impression, and use our packed schedule of interactive sessions to discover whether law is right for you.
