Firm description and career prospects
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.
Full sponsorship of the GDL and LPC plus a maintenance grant of £10,000 during each year of study.
We will be running our next vacation scheme from Monday 24 June to Friday 5 July 2019. 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.
