Training Contract

Morrison & Foerster’s training programme first begins with an induction. It will provide you with all the skills you need to become a trainee solicitor, as well as an opportunity to learn more about the firm’s practices. Even after the induction ends, you’ll still have the opportunity to attend formal training sessions that allow you to further develop your legal skills. 

Once you’ve completed the induction, you’ll have the opportunity to work in at least three areas of law. Trainees typically complete four, six month seats in four different departments. The firm has three core areas of practice in London (Corporate M&A, Litigation and Dispute Resolution, and Finance and Banking,) but there’s also a wide range of key practice areas to get involved in. These include: Data Privacy, Employment and Business Data Privacy. There’s even the opportunity to complete a secondment at the firm’s office in Singapore.

The partners and associates at the firm are committed to seeing their trainees succeed, so you’ll receive plenty of formal and informal support. Trainees receive formal reviews from both their supervisors and Training Principal, as well as a Trainee Liaison. This experienced associate will act as your mentor throughout your training contract, helping you to evaluate your strengths and areas for development. 

Vacation Scheme

A vacation scheme at Morrison & Foerster is a great opportunity for you to learn more about the firm, and for the firm to learn more about you. Morrison and Foerster recruit all their trainees from their vacation schemes, so it’s vital that you apply for one if you’re interested in a training contract. 

During your vacation scheme, you’ll be fully involved in legal life. This allows you to be completely sure that law is the career for you, and that Morrison and Foerster is the right firm for you. You’ll complete real work for real clients, and get the chance to conduct legal research and attend client meetings. The firm’s partners, associates and trainees will be on hand to provide support, and you’ll be able to ask them any questions you might have. You’ll even have the chance to attend social events, to allow you to get to know everyone in a relaxed setting.
