Who we’re looking for

The main thing we’re looking for is an innovative, creative mind coupled with a strong legal academic record and a wide range of extracurricular interests and achievements. If you’re also able to drive for results, have excellent interpersonal, problem solving and communication skills, then you could be exactly the kind of person we’re looking for.

At Mayer Brown, we value and encourage diversity – it’s critical to our success as an international law firm. That’s why there isn’t a particular ‘type’ of trainee or intern here – our talent pool is representative of our global firm.

Inclusion begins with opportunity. To ensure accessibility, we work with organisations to help us ensure our recruitment processes are made available to everyone. For example, in the UK we work with the likes of: Aspiring Solicitors, Sponsors for Educational Opportunity (SEO), My Plus Consulting, the Social Mobility Foundation and Stonewall. These partnerships encourage people from a wide range of backgrounds to join us.

So whoever you are and wherever you’re from, if you’ve got the talent, ambition and potential to succeed, then we’d love to hear from you. Be sure to look out for our events at your university, where you can meet some of our talented team.
