The AllAboutLaw perspective on Norton Rose Fulbright
With offices from Canberra to Cape Town, trainees at Norton Rose Fulbright get the chance to work with stellar clients across the globe. Employees even get the chance to advise on US law, or gain international experience with the firm’s world leading Islamic finance practice. The firm also has a number of associate and alliance offices, furthering its international outreach. This means that overseas opportunities are numerous, with past trainees completing a secondment in Athens, Sydney and Dubai, to name a few destinations.
Norton Rose Fulbright provides domestic and multi-jurisdictional legal services to corporates, governments, financial institutions and a range of other public sector organisations. The firm’s practice areas include corporate, intellectual property and real estate. However, the firm particularly excels in financial institutions, as well as industry sectors like insurance, energy and life sciences.
The firm is keen to reach as many aspiring lawyers as possible, with their stellar vacation schemes and first year programme, First Step. They also recognise that there is no one route to law, and offer a Solicitor Apprentice Programme and a Paralegal Apprentice Programme in their Newcastle office. There’s even an option for those who aren’t interested in becoming a lawyer: a Business & Legal Operations Graduate Scheme.
Trainees receive plenty of support throughout their training scheme, with a mentoring scheme. Employees are also well supported with numerous benefits available, including music lessons, on-site counselling and local restaurant discounts.
