A leading international law firm, Milbank has helped shape the legal landscape since its founding in New York in 1866. Influential industrialists, financiers and entrepreneurs turned to us for the strategies that empowered the economic development of the world. They still do.

We strive to attract professionals from different backgrounds who share one important quality – a commitment to excellence. We view the diversity of our people, culture and ideas as not merely an asset, but as a necessity. The unique perspectives of our lawyers strengthen the ability to deliver superb client advice.

Candidates for our vacation scheme should ideally be in their penultimate year of a law degree or final year of a non-law degree, though we are also happy to accept applications from final-year students and graduates. We have already recruited the students for our 2021 vacation scheme, so the next chance to apply will be for 2022.

Applications for our 2022 summer vacation scheme open on 1 October 2021.

Our first intake of trainees joined our London office in September 2013 and we currently have nine trainees in our London office.

Our training contract consists of four six-month seats. Trainees will be expected to undertake seats across our corporate, finance and litigation practices. In addition we offer comprehensive training to help develop trainees technical and practice group specific knowledge in addition to training on key communication, career management and presentation skills.

We will begin accepting applications for 2021 and 2022 intake from 30 November 2020.

The deadline for training contract applications is 31 July 2021.

Full sponsorship of the GDL and LPC plus a maintenance grant of £10,000 during each year of study.
