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.

We will be running our next vacation scheme from Monday 29 June to Friday 10 July 2020. Attendees will have the opportunity to sit in two different practice areas to get a real sense of life in a City law firm. There will also be a skills programme and a number of socials throughout the scheme. Attendees will be paid an allowance of £415 per week.

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.

Applications for our summer vacation scheme open Monday 1 October 2019.

The deadline for applications is 31 January 2020.

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 2020 and 2021 intake from 30 November 2019.

The deadline for training contract applications is 31 July 2020.
