London Training Contract

Applications for 2021 and 2022 training contracts are open to all graduates, penultimate-year law students and final-year non-law students from 14 October 2019 until 28 February 2020. Before joining the firm as a trainee, students are strongly encouraged to apply for a place on our Summer Vacation Scheme.

We have a wide variety of practice groups providing a full service to clients, and we do not align trainees to strict departmental 'seats', which ensures that you get as broad an experience as possible. Our trainees are just as important as our other fee earners and as such you will be as key to our client service and office development over the coming years as our partners, associates and staff. Our training contract is very flexible, designed with your interests in mind as well as our desire to create a rounded, commercial, qualified Katten lawyer with strong legal knowledge.

London Summer Vacation Scheme

We offer up to 12 places on two one-week vacation schemes in June, with the next intake taking place on 08 and 15 June 2020. The programme provides practical experience, with interns undertaking a variety of work from different practice areas and having the opportunity to see first-hand how our solicitors and partners work.

Applications for our Summer Vacation Scheme 2020 are open from 14 October 2019 until 28 February 2020. After the closing date, applications will be assessed and a shortlist of candidates will be interviewed in March/April 2020.
